In Defense of Anthony Hall, Canadian 9/11 Skeptic

by Reprehensor
911blogger.com

Images and Words

Anthony Hall is like many other 9/11 skeptics. At some point, after examining the events of 9/11 and the international consequences of that foul deed, (particularly the

consequences that befell countries with a predominantly Arab/Muslim population), Mr. Hall decided to speak out. The difference between Hall and most 9/11 skeptics, is that Mr. Hall is a sitting academic at a university in Lethbridge, Alberta, in Canada.

Hall joined a growing list of Canadian academics who have chosen to speak out publicly; John McMurtry , Graeme MacQueen , Michael Keefer , and of course, Michel Chossudovsky , a pioneer in 9/11 skepticism.

He made his debut as a skeptic of the 9/11 Official Conspiracy Theory (OCT) on September 6, 2008 in Edmonton, Alberta, with a reading of his paper, The Lies and Crimes of 911 . The paper is an excellent introduction to a series of complex, related studies, that encompass globalization, US imperial tendencies, and false-flag terrorism. Hall is well-versed in these issues, and won an Alberta Book Award for his volume, The American Empire and the Fourth World .

The cover features provocative imagery; Apache-like helicopters in place of stars on the American flag, giving no doubt as to Hall’s intent. The image is a very un-subtle, ironic reinterpretation of one of the prime symbols of the American dream; the very banner of Liberty itself is subverted to shock the viewer into a reevaluation of the iconic Red, White and Blue. Just as… Continue reading

A New Book-Publishing Paradigm for a New Human Paradigm

NEW WORLD DIGITAL, Inc. one of the world’s largest producers and distributors of electronic media in all digital formats including Kindle ®, Blu-ray ®, and print-on-demand is pleased to announce the publication of Michael C. Ruppert’s newest book, “A Presidential Energy Policy: Twenty-five Points Addressing the Siamese Twins of Energy and Money”.

We have been lied to about the stock market, AIG, Citigroup, hedge funds, mortgages, Ponzi-schemes, 401(k)s, the invasion of Iraq… even steroids in baseball. Why accept everything we have been told about energy? Our energy “information” comes from the same corporate entities that have misled us about everything else. A Presidential Energy Policy exposes the lies told about energy to protect a collapsing monetary system which now threatens all of industrial civilization. It also provides real, positive and immediate steps that can be taken at the individual, local, federal and global levels that can avert a potential extinction event for our species.

A Presidential Energy Policy says what an American president cannot, that energy and money (the economy) are Siamese… Continue reading

History Commons Projects, Update on April 16, 2009

As the History Commons e-mail returns after a break, one of the busiest projects
this week was the Loss of Civil Liberties Timeline. It has more about previously-
and still-secret memos from the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel
about the Geneva Conventions, rendition, and detainees. Some of the OLC’s
memos were later withdrawn, because of the “doubtful nature” of
their propositions.

Another active project was the Detainee Abuse Timeline, where a contributor
has added material about Binyam Mohamed, a British resident captured in Pakistan
in 2002 and then held in Morocco, Afghanistan, and Guantánamo, before his release
early this year.

In the International Relations Timeline we have new entries about the International
Criminal Court, the Bush administration’s lack of interest in multilateral
cooperation, and, believe it or not, George W. Bush’s sense of Vladimir
Putin’s soul.

Contributors to the US Military Timeline have more about forthcoming weapons
cuts, the return of fallen soldiers’ remains to Dover Air Force Base,
and missile defense.

Blowback or Bloody Treason

Well, the day was nine-eleven in the year two thousand-one
That’s the day the “war on terror” was officially begun
When 2 planes took down 3 buildings in a scene of “Shock & Awe”
Before they hauled away the rubble, it was a crime scene for the law!

Chorus:
Who had the means? Who had the motive?
Who could do this crime and live?
Who had the opportunity?
Who benefits to what degree?
We need a great detective’s logic!
Forensic facts and laws of physics…
Not “leaps of faith”… Just “steps to reason”
Was it blowback or bloody treason?
Was it blowback or bloody treason?

‘The World is Turning’ – Don Paul’s new book

worldisturningcoverThe World Is Turning: ” ‘9/11′ “, the Movement for Justice, and Reclaiming America for the World combines two earlier books by Don Paul and much other material into a single volume. This book of books, including pieces that expose
2008’s bail-out of commercial and investment Banks, altogether takes us on a
crucially revealing journey into realities and lies that shape our present….
Most importantly, this record of seven years’ work gives us tools to penetrate
layers of deceit, to perceive guilt, to arrive at justice, and to free ourselves.”

KEVIN RYAN, co-editor at Journalof911studies.com, in his Foreword to The
World Is Turning
See also Kevin’s comments here, introducing Don’s recent essay, “Becoming Our Government, Making the Future Our Own”
on which the above posted video, “Why Resistance is Essential,” is based.

“What does the attack of September 11, 2001 have to do with the 2008 Wall
Street Bailout? If anyone can help us to understand these events, it’s Don Paul….
Like few others, he provides concrete solutions to address injustices of our
times.”

JIM HOFFMAN, creator of the 911research.wtc7.net website

“What really happened on September 11, 2001 remains one of the burning issues
of our day. Don Paul is to be commended for keeping this issue alive and for
linking it to the financial 9-11 going on right now. A man of diverse talents
(novelist, poet, musician, environmentalist), Paul is also focused on presenting
practical solutions for a sustainable future.”

Engaging Interviews, Insightful Commentary from Electric Politics

January 10, 2009
Electric Politics Podcast Schedule Resumes January 16

Well, I enjoyed having two weeks off, but I’m glad to get back to podcasting.
So here’s the starting lineup for the new season. Friday, January 16, my guest
is Martin Fletcher of The Times of London (not to be confused with
Martin Fletcher of NBC news). Martin is a roving reporter without portfolio
and previously the Times‘ foreign editor, their Washington Bureau Chief,
and a foreign correspondent. He talks to me from Israel. The Friday following,
January 23, my guest is Dr. James Petras, who’s got a lot to say about Zionism
in America. After that, I’m not sure — a couple interviews are pending,
on arms control and on the economy. So we’ll see… And as I say, I’m glad to
be back!

Barbarism in Gaza (and Zimbabwe)

Come To Palestine antique posterOne wonders whether, if it weren’t for the
excessive delay between election and inauguration, Israel would still have attacked
Gaza. In any case, Israel’s assault being less a war than a hunt for naked prey,
it’s difficult, particularly here in the U.S., to get a feeling for what’s happening.
So I was fortunate in being able to turn to Martin Walker of The Times,
who spoke to me from Jerusalem. We also talk about Zimbabwe, where Martin has
spent much of the past year. And Somalia. I highly value Martin’s insights and
experience and I’m grateful for his making himself available. Hopefully we can
talk again.…

Change Needs Truth – New 9/11 Brochure for Obama Inauguration

January 17, 2009

brochure cover

DC 911Truth has produced an attractive new brochure to be distributed at the
Obama Inauguration and surrounding events. On the cover, President Obama is
asked to “help America learn the truth about 9/11,” but the interior
is
aimed at general audiences who may not be aware of problems with the
official account, or who may be quick to dismiss any questions as conspiracy
theories.

In a concise and straightforward way, the brochure presents the many facts
that challenge the 9/11 Commission Report (including doubts expressed by
Co-Chairs Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton themselves), as well as
contradictions in the accepted narrative about air defense, the alleged
hijackers, the destruction of the World Trade Center, and the anthrax
attacks. Only statements that could be verified in mainstream news sources
were included and carefully footnoted, so as to maximize the credibility of
the piece.

At the end, readers are asked to face a difficult reality: 9/11 could not
have occurred without high-level complicity from inside the U.S. government.
They are urged to learn the truth and tell others-especially the media and Congress-with the goal of opening a new, truly independent investigation.

The brochure can be downloaded and printed on the front and back of a letter-size sheet of paper (8.5 x 11in.), folded and distributed by mail or as a handout.

The DC Truth group considers this brochure an effective communication tool and will soon release another version not geared to the Obama Inauguration.

116th Peer-reviewed Paper Published in Journal of 9/11 Studies: ‘The Missing Jolt: A Simple Refutation of the NIST-Bazant Collapse Hypothesis’

by Steven Jones

The 116th peer-reviewed paper was published today in the Journal of 9/11 Studies : “The Missing Jolt: A Simple Refutation of the NIST-Bazant Collapse Hypothesis” by Prof. Graeme MacQueen and Tony Szamboti. Take a look! http://journalof911studies.com/volume/2008/TheMissingJolt4.pdf

This fine paper underwent several months of rather arduous peer-review preceding its publication in the Journal of 9/11 Studies. The paper supports work by James Gourley published in the Journal of Engineering Mechanics and recent analysis by David Chandler. A few quotes from the paper should wet your interest:

“In its Final Report on the Collapse of the World Trade Center Towers, the National Institute of Standards and Technology summarizes its three year study and outlines its explanation of the total collapse of WTC 1 and WTC 2.[1] Readers of the report will find that the roughly $20 million expended on this effort have resulted in an explanation of the total collapse of these buildings that is so vague it barely qualifies as a hypothesis. But it does have one crucial feature of a hypothesis: it is, in principle, falsifiable. In fact, it is easy to demonstrate that it is false.

In this paper we will, concentrating on the North Tower, offer a refutation that is:

  • easy to understand but reasonably precise
  • capable of being stated briefly
  • verifiable by any reader with average computer skills and a grasp of simple mathematics.

Becoming Our Government, Making the Future Our Own, by Don Paul

Don Paul is a writer, musician and activist who was among the first to speak out about 9/11 fraud. His books, including “‘9/11′: Facing Our Fascist State” and “Waking Up From Our Nightmare (with Jim Hoffman),” have inspired many to seek the truth about 9/11 and other critical issues.

A new compilation of Don’s writings is called The World is Turning: “9/11,” the Movement for Justice, & Reclaiming America for the World. This new book combines two earlier and much-acclaimed Don Paul books with many articles that are new to print and that extend into late 2008. I was honored to be asked to write the introduction. The book should be available soon though Don’s website, http://www.wireonfire.com/donpaul/dphome.html

Today, a new essay from Don, entitled “Becoming Our Government, Making the Future Our Own” is available here: http://www.911blogger.com/files/Becoming.pdf.

Many thanks to Don for all his courageous and hopeful work.

Revelatory new book on Bush family

publishing January 2009

How did Bush happen? How did George W. Bush, of all people, rise to the most powerful position in the world? This simple question sparked a five-year investigative odyssey by Russ Baker. What he found will force us to rethink virtually everything we thought we knew about the Bush family and its role in shaping recent American history.

In FAMILY OF SECRETS, Baker reveals that Bush, the people around him, and his policies are but an extreme, very public manifestation of what his family and its circle have always been about: an interlocking web of covert and overt machinations on behalf of a small cluster of elites-social, financial, industrial, military, intelligence-that enabled the Bush dynasty and propelled George W. Bush to the top.

Russ Baker’s deep background profile of the Bushes reveals a family with ongoing connections to the shadow world of intelligence, utilizing the dark arts of the trade to achieve their positions at the pinnacle of America’s political elite. Baker lays bare the stealth substructure that created the Bush dynasty, powered its rise, and brought America to its current state of crisis. Given the disastrous results of the last… Continue reading

Pearl Harbor

December 8, 2008
by Carol Brouillet
CommunityCurrency.org

December 8, 2008 – Pearl Harbor Day

The New Pearl HarborSixty-seven years ago, on Sunday, December 7, 1941 the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, killing over two thousand people and wounding over a thousand. The attack enabled FDR to enter World War II, and prompted huge numbers of Americans to volunteer for military service. In the book
Day of Deceit: The Truth About FDR and Pearl Harbor (2000), Robert Stinnett unveiled a memo outlining an 8 point plan to provoke Japan into attacking the US.

Admiral Kimmel, Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet, was removed from office and demoted, taking the blame for the losses at Pearl Harbor soon after the attacks. Researchers over the course of many years believe that critical information was withheld from Kimmel and that he was unjustly punished. One of those researchers was his grandson, Manning Kimmel IV, who persuaded the U.S. Senate in 1999 to pass a nonbinding resolution exonerating Admiral Kimmel and Army Lieutenant General Short.

In addition to shifting public opinion and gaining popular support for the US entry into World War II, Pearl Harbor was the justification for the passage of the National Security Act of 1947; the creation of the National Security Council, the CIA, and the Department of the Air Force; and the reorganization of the Department of War and the Department of the Navy into the Defense Department. Manning Kimmel IV, who worked for the FBI and the CIA, noted that emblazoned on the CIA’s walls is the reminder that the CIA was created “To Prevent Another Pearl Harbor.”

Philip Zelikow, author of the US “Pre-Emptive War Doctrine,” has studied and written about the use, and misuse, of history in policymaking, including “beliefs thought to be true (although not necessarily known to be true with certainty)”…“Searing events that take on ‘transcendent’ importance and, therefore, retain their power even as the experiencing generation passes from the scene.” In 1998 he co-authored the article Catastrophic Terrorism: Elements of a National Policy, which speculated that if the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center had succeeded,

“the resulting horror and chaos would have exceeded our ability to describe it.

David Ray Griffin’s ‘The New Pearl Harbor Revisited’ rated ‘Pick of the Week’ by Publishers Weekly

newpearlharborrevisitedThe nearly 40% of American people who doubt the official account regarding
the September 11, 2001 attacks will be gratified to learn that their misgivings
have become recommended reading by a pillar of the book trade, Publishers
Weekly
.

The leading starred review on PW‘s “Web
Pick of the Week
” is Dr. David Ray Griffin’s newly released The
New Pearl Harbor Revisited
(Interlink/Olive Branch press, 2008).

In its November 24, 2008 online issue, PW writes:

Griffin “addresses many points in exhaustive detail, from the physical
impossibility of the official explanation of the towers’ collapse to
the Commission’s failure to scrutinize the administration to the NIST’s
contradiction of its own scientists to the scads of eyewitness and scientific
testimony in direct opposition to official claims.

“Citing hundreds, if not thousands, of sources, [Griffin’s] detailed
analysis is far from reactionary or delusional, building a case that, though
not conclusive, raises enough valid and disturbing questions to make his call
for a new investigation more convincing than ever.”

Weekly reviews from this trusted and prestigious publisher have guided the
book trade, including booksellers, publishers, librarians, and literary agents,
for 136 years.

Dr. Griffin’s book can be found at good bookstores or purchased at a discounted price from 911Truth.org.

The New Pearl Harbor Revisited: 9/11, the Cover-Up, and the Exposé
David Ray Griffin. Interlink/Olive Branch, $20 (386p) ISBN 9781566567299

Author and professor Griffin (9/11 Contradictions: An Open Letter to Congress and the Press) knows his work is referred to by officials and the media as conspiracy theory, and he has a rebuttal: “the official theory is itself a conspiracy theory.” In this companion volume to 2004’s The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11, Griffin provides corrections, raises new issues and discusses “the two most important official reports about 9/11,” the 9/11 Commission Report and the National Institute of Standards and Technology report on the Twin Towers, both “prepared by people highly responsive to the wishes of the White House” and riddled with “omission and distortion from beginning to end.” Griffin addresses many points in exhaustive detail, from the physical impossibility of the official explanation of the towers’ collapse to the Commission’s failure to scrutinize the administration to the NIST’s contradiction of its own scientists to the scads of eyewitness and scientific testimony in direct opposition to official claims.…

Islamophobia and the “War on Terror”: the Continuing Pretext for U.S. Imperial Conquest

ISLAMOPHOBIA AND THE ”WAR ON TERROR”: THE CONTINUING PRETEXT FOR U.S. IMPERIAL CONQUEST

© Diana Ralph, Ph.D.Abstract

The 9-11 attacks were the pretext which sold the myth of evil Muslim terrorists imminently threatening Americans. That tale allowed the Cheney-led members of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) to implement their 1990 DPG plan for world control. The “war on terror” has nothing to do with protecting the U.S. and world’s people from “terrorists”, and everything to do with securing the American empire abroad and muzzling democracy and human rights at home. Designed to inspire popular support for U.S. wars of world conquest, it is modeled on Islamophobic stereotypes, policies, and political structures developed by the Israeli Likkud and Bush Sr. since 1979. To defeat this plan, we must overcome our Islamophobic fear of “terrorists” and stand in solidarity with Muslims.

Editor’s Note:
Intro from Reprehensor, Editor of 911Blogger.com: Seven Stories Press of New York has published an affordable softcover version of the invaluable scholarly volume, “The Hidden History of 9-11″ (see this review) . Here is their page dedicated to this updated second edition . To promote the book, Seven Stories has allowed us to publish an online version of the chapter by Professor Diana Ralph, dealing with the historical roots of “international terrorism,” Islamophobia, and imperial aggression. This chapter is typical of the scholarly detail in “Hidden History.” If you enjoy this chapter, please consider purchasing the book.

Terrorizing Dissent – The Election Cut

rnccopsGlass
Bead Collective, Twin Cities Indymedia, and other independent media activists
have released a new film, ‘Terrorizing Dissent’, an exposé of events
at the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Featuring first-person accounts and footage from more than forty cameras on
the streets, ‘Terrorizing Dissent’ focuses on the story of dissent suppressed.
People charged with “conspiracy to riot in furtherance of terrorism”
speak out against the government’s campaign to manipulate media coverage and
label civil disobedience and community organizing as terrorism.

“If civil disobedience becomes framed as ‘terrorism’ … that’s baloney.
And the reason they’re waving the T-word around, there’s one reason and
one reason only, because they want to squash dissent and they want to justify
what the police do in the effort of squashing that dissent.”

Michelle Gross, Communities United Against Police Brutality

‘Terrorizing Dissent’ shows the results of the $50 million dollars the Department
of Homeland Security gave to local authorities for security — a large
chunk of which went to weaponize the police — and the $10 million insurance
policy contract between the RNC Host Committee and the City of St. Paul, which
shattered Minnesota’s civil compact between protesters and police.

Are Made-for-TV Elections Pre-Empting Real Elections?

Greetings from New Haven–

I’m sure you’ve noticed it. They’re doing it now to John
McCain by saying he can’t win. They did it to Hillary Clinton in the primaries
when she wouldn’t give in. And they’ve done it in other elections,
like when they projected Reagan the winner over Jimmy Carter in 1980 with polls
still open from coast to coast. Why can’t they wait for the system to
work?

My name is William Shanley, producer of The Made-for-TV Election hosted by… Continue reading
