October 28, 2008, a press conference was held in front of the incumbent, Anna
Eshoo’s office, the new
TV AD was shown to the only journalist, Don Kazak, who came to the conference
pretty last minute event. I have known Don Kazak for years; he has written a
few stories about my activism before. Here is what he wrote:

Palo Altan Carol Brouillet, who is the Green Party candidate running against
Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Palo Alto, will get her message on TV with a 30-second
ad scheduled to start running Wednesday.
Brouillet said the ads will run more than 200 times in the 14th Congressional
District at or near prime time on cable channels CNN, Fox and CNBC. Because
the ads are just running in the district, “they aren’t that expensive,”
Brouillet has long been a critic of the government’s explanation of what
happened on Sept. 11, 2001, when the World Trade Towers were demolished by
terrorists who hijacked commercial jetliners.
“A number of documentaries have questioned the official explanation
of 9/11,” Brouillet said. “Internationally, people are questioning
the official story.”

Scholars for 9-11 Truth & Justice Misrepresented in Draft Bill Sent to 8 House
Berkeley, CA, October 22, 2008 — On October 18, 2008, an OpEdNews article titled,
"8 House Members View Draft Bill on Independent Science/Tech Probe of WTC
1, 2, 7 Collapses," was published by four members of the group Scholars for
9/11 Truth & Justice (STJ911.org). The authors of the article and draft bill
are not spokespersons for Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice, and therefore
are individually responsible for it.
Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice does not endorse the draft bill due to the
inclusion of numerous unscientific claims and misrepresentations, and condemns
in the strongest of terms any associations between the organization and the claims
presented by the authors of this bill. As stated at the front page of their website,
Scholars for 9-11 Truth and Justice "take[s] care to present the strongest,
most credible research available…"
While in agreement with the authors of this bill that a new investigation into
the tragic events of September 11, 2001 is warranted, representatives of the Scholars
group note that the draft bill and article lack basic scientific rigor and credibility,
with statements such as, "the entire WTC [complex] was destroyed by directed
energy weaponry (DEW)," and the ideas that "nuclear materials, missiles
or DEW weapons were used." The sister publication of the Scholars group,
The Journal of 9/11 Studies… Continue reading

Latest Update 11/08/08
Thanks to www.historycommons.org, DHS, and simuvac. This is dedicated to the 9/11 Truth Movement.
Before I begin, I would like to say that theorizing about what happened on 9/11, when you’re not being given answers to your questions about that day by the people who SHOULD be able to do so, is PERFECTLY normal. As is suspecting that the reason these answers aren’t being given is “sinister” in nature. As Ray McGovern said, “for people to dismiss these questioners as “conspiratorial advocates”, or “conspiratorial theorists”… that’s completely out of line because the… The questions remain because the President who should be able to answer them, WILL NOT.” When you think about everything this Administration has done in almost 8 years, the idea that they might not be giving us the answers we seek because of something “sinister” is not crazy. In fact, it’s the most logical conclusion one can come to at this point. After seven plus years of obfuscation, spin, lies, and cover-ups regarding the 9/11 attacks, it is unavoidable to think that criminal complicity is the reason why.
That being said, we have not proven it beyond the shadow of doubt. We do not have documentation that shows they planned it. We do not have a signed confession from someone. We have pieces of the puzzle, and to most of us that have been doing this a long time, those pieces point to more than just Osama Bin Laden,… Continue reading

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. – John Feal, founding president of the FealGood Foundation and a demolition expert who worked at Ground Zero following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, will bring his message to Upshur County students and residents on Friday, Oct. 24. Feal and up to seven other first responders will meet with students at Buchannon Upshur High School beginning at 8:30 a.m. The group will meet with the community later in the day.
Feal, like 70 percent of 9/11 workers, suffers from post-9/11 illnesses. One of his feet had to be amputated after being crushed by an eight-ton steel beam. He also suffers from a respiratory syndrome called World Trade Center Cough and posttraumatic stress disorder.
Feal agreed to visit West Virginia after some Buckhannon-Upshur High School students contacted him via e-mail after watching a documentary in health educator Mateal Poling’s class. The documentary, Save the Brave, chronicles the daily struggles of 9/11 Ground Zero workers in the seven years since the attacks. Greg Quibell, one of the men featured, died of his injuries the day before the film’s premiere in New York.
“You have no idea how excited they were when Feal replied — me too,” Poling said. “It is hard to imagine that these kids were only first and second graders on 9/11, but thanks to Feal’s efforts, our students are starting to have a better understanding of the profound effects of that day.”
Feal said he is “humbled and honored to meet such amazing Americans.”
“They are a reflection of the teacher who has taught them well,” Feal said.…Continue reading

For over two years now I have been speaking and writing about what I call deep events. I mean by deep events the traumatic and unexpected episodes that recur periodically in US history and alter it, nearly always for the worse. These deep events can never be properly analyzed or understood, because of an intelligence dimension which results in a socially imposed veil of silence, both in the government and in the Mainstream Media.
The more that I look at these deep events comparatively, ranging over the past five decades, the more similarities I see between them, and the more I understand them in the light of each other. I hope in this paper to use analogies from the murder of JFK and 9/11 to cast new light on the murders of Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy.1
I began this analysis in 2006 by comparing the JFK assassination with 9/11. I drew attention to over a dozen similarities, of which today I will be focusing on only four:
1) the remarkable and puzzling speed with which those in power identified what I call the designated culprits (Lee Harvey Oswald and the 19 alleged hijackers),
2) the self-incriminating trail allegedly left by the culprits themselves — such as the bundle that James Earl Ray is said to have conveniently left in a doorway on his way to his car. Oswald was said to have carried a flagrantly falsified draft card identifying… Continue reading

But how do we pick Presidents? The Ballot Box or the TV box?
Watch how TV writes the scripts, directs the action,
and casts winners in the most significant elections
in the last forty years — 1980 and 2008 — then ask yourself:
“Is this any way to pick a President?”

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

“My sense of alarm comes from the clear lessons from history that,
once certain checks and balances are destroyed, and once certain institutions
have been intimidated, the pressures that can turn an open society into a closed
one turn into direct assaults; at that point events tend to occur very rapidly,
and a point comes at which there is no easy turning back to the way it used

“The framers of our Constitution fully understood that it can happen

Wolf and recognize her as a sister in their struggle.”
~ Mark Crispin Miller, author of FOOLED AGAIN
Along with the rest of America, best-selling author and feminist Naomi Wolf
was overwhelmed by the swell of conflicting information and the sudden march
to war after 9/11. Wolf looked to history to help her understand the dramatic
changes she believed she was witnessing, and discovered the disturbing similarities
between post-9/11 US policy and that of historically fascist regimes such as
Mussolini’s Italy and Hitler’s Germany.
Wolf authored her next book, THE END OF AMERICA, which demonstrated that the
United States was on a remarkably certain path toward ending democracy. Taking
the thesis of her book to the streets, Wolf set out… Continue reading
The Journal of Engineering Mechanics has recently published a paper I authored. It can be found here, beginning on page 915: ( PDF 224kb )
Normally, such a publication would be announced here at 911Blogger to let everyone know we are still making progress publishing criticisms of the official fairy tale in mainstream technical journals, in the hopes of reaching more members of the scientific and engineering community.
While I am excited this paper will be reaching new audiences, and I would like to share that fact with you, I am writing today for a different purpose.
Not much is ever written about what we go through to get these papers published. The publication of this paper is a case study in the struggles we face. I’d like to relate to you exactly what I had to go through to get this paper published, and what influences the substance of it have already had. I hesitate to reveal some of the information below, but as will become clear, the Journal of Engineering Mechanics personnel have demonstrated a complete lack of scientific ethics, and I feel like I have no choice but to publish exactly what occurred in the lead up to my paper’s publication.
Before I begin, let me make it perfectly clear that I do not want anyone to call, email or otherwise harass the editors or staff at the Journal of Engineering Mechanics or the authors of the papers I talk about below. Such behavior is extremely counterproductive,… Continue reading

“I don’t think the Democrats get it. All these new rules and games … could flip the vote to the GOP in half a dozen states.”
Rolling Stone Magazine is making this important investigative story available on the net in its entirety, free of charge.
“The new registrations thrown out, the existing registrations scrubbed, the spoiled ballots, the provisional ballots that were never counted — and what you have is millions of voters, more than enough to swing the presidential election, quietly being detached from the electorate by subterfuge.
“Jim Crow was laid to rest, but his cousins were not,” says Donna Brazile. “We got rid of poll taxes and literacy tests but now have a second generation of schemes to deny our citizens their franchise.” Come November, the most crucial demographic may prove to be Americans who have been denied the right to vote. If Democrats are to win the 2008 election, they must not simply beat John McCain at the polls — they must beat him by a margin that exceeds the level of GOP vote tampering.

Vincent Bugliosi’s best-selling book, The Prosecution of George W. Bush
for Murder (http://www.amazon.com/Prosecution-George-W-Bush-Murder/dp/159315481X)
may be about to become more than a book. A viable candidate for attorney general
of Vermont has committed to appointing Bugliosi as special prosecutor to immediately
indict Bush, Cheney, Rice, Tenet, et alia, if she is elected.
Her name is Charlotte Dennett, and she and the future of the rule of law in
the world need you to send every dime you can spare to her campaign (http://charlottedennettforattorneygeneral.com
Bugliosi struggled to find a publisher, despite his record of writing best-sellers,
had to go out of the country to find a company that would make the audio version
of the book, and his book has not been reviewed in a single major newspaper,
although the New York Times wrote an article about the media blackout
of this book (including by the New York Times) that had nonetheless
become a New York Times bestseller. In fact, even those voices in the
corporate media that people assume would have Vince on their shows (Maddow,
Olbermann, Stewart, Colbert) have all refused. They love talking bad about Bush,
but not suggesting that something might be done about it. They were the same
way with impeachment. But inernational media outlets from around the world are
intensely covering what Bugliosi and Dennett are doing and the prospect of seeing
Bush indicted for murder.
And, even in the United States, word keeps… Continue reading
by Mickey Huff, Associate Director of Project Censored
Project Censored, the media research group at Sonoma State University (SSU), has just released it’s annual report on the top stories that didn’t make the corporate mainstream news from the past year. The book is published by Seven Stories Press. Censored 2009, edited by director Dr. Peter Phillips with Dr. Andrew Roth, exposes the major stories Americans should know and care about that the “free press” just doesn’t deliver. The top stories for this year can be viewed at the PC website and the piece in the North Bay Bohemian can be read here.
Project Censored award winning journalist and researcher Stephen Lendman has just written about the Project in a piece titled Project Censored‘s Media Democracy Advocacy which looks at the history of the Project as well as details in this year’s volume. A lecture series hosting authors of this years top censored stories is presently underway at SSU for those in the Bay Area wishing to attend. The series is being broadcast at Free Speech TV this fall as well.
As acting Associate Director of Project Censored, I invite everyone to explore this year’s book and help support media democracy in action. Our currently calamitous and critical condition as a fragile free society depends upon a well informed citizenry and I strongly believe that Project Censored is a major force in the direction of strengthening our society’s democratic institutions and principles.

Iraq War Veterans Arrested While Attempting to Deliver Questions to Obama and McCain
HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — One hour before the final presidential debate of the 2008 campaign, fourteen members of Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) marched in formation to Hofstra University to present questions to the candidates. IVAW had requested permission from debate moderator Bob Schieffer to ask their questions during the debate, but received no response.
The contingent of veterans in dress and combat uniforms attempted to enter the building where the debate was to be held in order to ask questions about poor veterans’ healthcare and supporting war resisters of the candidates, but were turned back by police. IVAW members at the front of the formation were immediately arrested, and others were pushed back into the crowd by police on horseback. Several members were injured, including former Army Sergeant Nick Morgan who suffered a broken cheekbone when he was trampled by police horses before being arrested.
“Neither of the candidates has shown real support for service members and veterans. We came here to try and have serious questions answered, questions that we as veterans of the Iraq war have a right to ask, but instead we were arrested. We will continue to ask these questions no matter who is elected. We believe that the time has come to end this war and bring our troops home, and we will be pushing for that no matter what happens in this election.” said Jason Lemieux, a former Sergeant in the US Marine Corps who served three tours in Iraq, and member of IVAW.…Continue reading

“Donald Rumsfeld $2.3 trillion” is all anyone needs to search for
on the Internet to discover why the country might really be broke.
Current Green Party presidential candidate and former U. S. Rep. Cynthia Mckinney
had the following questions for former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld
“Mr. Secretary: according to the Comptroller General of the United States,
there are serious financial management problems at the Pentagon, to which Mr.
Cooper alluded. Fiscal Year 1999: $2.3 trillion missing. Fiscal Year 2000, $1.1
trillion missing. And DoD is the number one reason why the government can’t
balance its checkbook. The Pentagon has claimed year after year that the reason
it can’t account for the money is because its computers don’t communicate
with each other. My second question, Mr. Secretary, is who has the contracts
today, to make those systems communicate with each other? How long have they
had those contracts, and how much have the taxpayers paid for them?” (March
11, 2005, House hearing on the 2006 budget for the Department of Defense and
America is still waiting for the answers.
If elements within the Pentagon were pillaging trillions of taxpayer dollars
almost a decade ago, what has been lost since?
The amount of $2.3 trillion is more than three times the $700 billion the former
CEO of Goldman Sachs, Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson, wants to give
out to his pals on Wall Street.
