Our country is no longer controlled by, and for, We the People, but instead by, and on behalf of, international banking and multinational corporate interests. While the gradual, almost imperceptible takeover of our government by this corporate fascism has been evolving by design for many decades, it is a coup d'etat nonetheless and has been disastrous for the vast majority of Americans. This blog is an exploration and discussion of how this occurred, and the damage it has done to our democratic processes.

Revealing the NIST Fabrication

Fires only on floors 7,8,9,11,12 and 13

Scientific Fraud Derailed Democracy and Justice

A little over three years ago I published a post about accelerated free fall and what this meant. In that piece, I listed seven facts about World Trade Center 7, one being "(I)f fire caused Building 7 to collapse, it would be the first, ever, fire-induced collapse of a steel-frame high-rise" -- not only in the United States, but anywhere in the world. Just as this was true three years ago, it's just as much a statement of fact today.

I just finished reading The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7: Why the Final Official Report about 9/11 is Unscientific and False, by David Ray Griffin. In this account, Mr. Griffin shows that NIST's final report on WTC 7 (issued in August 2008) was not only unscientific, but reveals how its authors committed scientific fraud by ignoring, falsifying and fabricating evidence. As John D. Wyndham, Ph.D., Physics, reviews on the back cover of Griffin's work: "A definitive study of what happens when political concerns are permitted to override science and the scientific method. With intellectual finesse worthy of a scientist, Griffin shows that NIST's WTC 7 report has no scientific credibility. A must read for all concerned with the restoration of science to its 'rightful place' in our democracy." I'll take Dr. Wyndham's last sentence a step farther by adding that this book is a must read for all concerned with the restoration of democracy and justice to its rightful place in our hijacked republic.

It seems to me that the naysayers who fight tooth-and-nail, screaming-and-spitting in their hysterical attempts to debunk the research that says, very definitively, that the collapse in free-fall of WTC 7 couldn't have occurred in any way other than by the use of controlled demolition, are always those who live every aspect of their lives through quaint slogans and sound bites. Much evidence, both of a physical nature and through testimony, has revealed startling developments since 9/11. Not surprisingly, this information has never been broadcasted to the public -- but this doesn't mean it doesn't exist.    

The following is taken from Appendix B: Another Towering Inferno That Did Not Collapse of Griffin's book. My intent is not to go through each finely researched detail of Griffin's work. That's been adequately done through other sources, most available on the Internet. Rather, I want to substantiate my previous claim, from over three years ago, that never in the history of steel-framed high-rise construction, has a fire brought down a building in total collapse -- unless you're willing to believe NIST's final report concerning WTC 7. 

"In Chapter 10, we saw that NIST acknowledged the fact that fires in previous high-rise steel-framed buildings -- such as the 1988 fire in the First Interstate Bank building in Los Angeles, which burned for 3.5 hours, and the 1991 fire in One Meridian Plaza in Philadelphia, which burned for 18 hours -- did not cause them to collapse. (NIST could have also mentioned the 2004 fire in Caracus, Venezuela, which raged for 17 hours in a 50-story building, completely gutting its top 20 floors.)

NIST sought to rationalize this fact, as we saw in Chapter 10, in terms of differences in design. One of the crucial differences, NIST claimed in its Draft Report, was the fact that, in all of those other buildings, shear studs had secured the girders to the floor slabs, whereas in WTC 7 the girders were not secured with shear studs.

In its Final Report, however, NIST admitted that its former claim was not true: There were no girder shear studs in one of the buildings that had remained standing. NIST's attempt to blame WTC 7's collapse on the absence of girder shear studs was thereby significantly undermined.

This attempt was then completely destroyed by the discovery, reported in Chapter 10, that NIST's claim about WTC 7 was also not true: Its 2004 report on WTC 7 showed that shear studs had connected its girders to the floors.

Accordingly, although NIST tried to mitigate the evident absurdity of its claim that WTC 7 was brought down by fire -- in spite of the fact that fires in steel-framed high-rise buildings prior to 9/11 had never caused any of them to collapse, even though some of those fires had been much larger and longer-lasting than the fires in WTC 7 -- the NIST report served only to show that the absurdity of this claim could not be mitigated.

On February 9, 2009 -- less than three months after NIST had issued its Final report -- the absurdity of this claim was made dramatically evident by a fire in Beijing's Television Cultural Center (TVCC), a 500-foot-high steel-framed structure. This building consisted of a main tower plus two wings.
Raging inferno at TVCC (2/9/2009)
The main tower was to be occupied by a luxury hotel, the Mandarin Oriental, so some news reports about the fire referred to the building by that name. The headline for the Associated Press story, for example, was: 'Fire Rages at Beijing Mandarin Hotel.'

The fire, which was started by fireworks, evidently began about 7:30pm, quickly spread throughout the entire structure, and was not put out until early the next morning. 'The entire hotel building was engulfed in flames,' said the Associated Press. 'Flames 20 - 30 feet high shot out of the building,' reported Reuters, adding that the fire did not begin to abate until about midnight. The all-engulfing nature of this fire is shown in videos available on the Internet.

The building's structure, however, was unaffected. 'For all the ferocity of the fire that reached the top of the brand new cultural centre and hotel complex,' the Guardian observed, 'the structure of the building looked to be remarkably unscathed.' This newspaper even highlighted this fact with its headline: 'Beijing's Newest Skyscraper Survives Blaze.' A report on the aftermath, which accompanies a video showing the surviving structure, states: 'Local sources say the structure of the building remains sound.'

The fires in the TVCC tower and WTC 7 were alike in one respect, namely, that the buildings in which they occurred were similar, being steel-framed structures of roughly the same height (the TVCC tower was approximately 500 feet, WTC 7 approximately 600 feet), in which no sprinkler system was working on the floors on which fires occurred (in WTC 7, these were the lower floors; in the TVCC tower, these were all the floors, as the sytem had not yet been installed).

Otherwise, however, the fires were completely different. Whereas the TVCC fire engulfed the entire building, from top to bottom, WTC 7 had what NIST called 'sustained fires' on only six of its 47 floors, and even these six floors were never entirely engulfed by fire.

Structurally unaffected steel-frame of TVCC (right)
Also, whereas the TVCC fire endured for a long time -- at least eight hours; one report says fifteen -- the fires on the six floors of WTC 7 evidently lasted, as we saw in Chapter 8, for periods ranging from 40 minutes to slightly over three hours. As a result, the thermal expansion and weakening of steel in WTC 7 would have been insignificant compared with the expansion and weakening in the TVCC tower. This would be true even if we accepted NIST's unsubstantiated claim that the fires on these floors lasted for seven hours.

And yet, NIST would have us believe that the fires on those six floors of WTC 7 brought it down, whereas the all-engulfing fire in the Beijing building left it structurally unaffected. One might be forgiven for suspecting that this fire in Beijing, coming so soon after the appearance of NIST's Final Report on WTC 7, was arranged by the gods in order to drive home the absurdity of this report."

Please make a point of going to the Web and doing a search about the TVCC tower (or the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Beijing) and pull up videos of this enormous fire. Watch the red and orange fire plumes leap into the night sky. Then, look up WTC 7 and look for any available videos of that burning tower from the afternoon of September 11, 2001. There's not a lot to be found, whether video or photographs, but what is available indicates a stark difference. The fires in WTC 7 were limited to a few floors (just six, by NIST's own account, and those appear starved for fuel based upon the billowing black smoke -- so could not have been burning very hot), and were not sustained in any one area for any more than a little over three hours (and in some areas, as little as forty minutes).

If you want to see David Ray Griffin poke giant holes in NIST's final report on WTC 7, and you want to be convinced that this report is filled with not only bad scientific reasoning and poor logic, but is also brimming with blatant lies and omissions, than make a point of getting a copy. It certainly adds more fuel to the already spreading fire proving that the whole official narrative behind what actually happened that day is false. However, you might be one who wants to live a life filled with quaint sound bites and charming quasi-patriotic slogans. If so, be my guest. Not everybody's capable of understanding the truth...but the facts are the facts, and the glaring fact here is that never has a steel-frame skyscraper fallen by fire alone. Ever. But NIST wants you to believe WTC 7 did.

Lee Camp: It's Not Your Fault

No, Really, It's Not...

Really. Watch last Friday's episode of Redacted Tonight -- specifically Lee Camp's opening monologue. If you're struggling, it's not your fault. Just remember this. And remember whose fault it is. This economic "malaise" we're living through didn't just happen. It has real underpinnings. Just keep this in mind and never forget. Know thy enemy, because all kidding aside, they know you. And they're going to continue the assault against you until you stand up and let them know that you know, and that you're not going to take it anymore.  

Don't allow yourself to be distracted. Distraction is the enemy's modus operandi. They've used it time and time again, and they'll continue using it against you. Don't let it influence you. How? Keep informed and seek-out non-mainstream media sources for what's going on both here and around the world. Otherwise, you've taken the blue pill.   

Stop living in ignorance of the truth. As painful as it may be, face the truth. Take a cue from John: "The truth will set you free." All else is just going through the motions

Investigating What The Official Conspiracy Theory Narrative Failed to Mention

Reveals U.S.- sponsored terrorism

Take the Red Pill and See How Deep the Rabbit Hole Goes 

It  has been over fourteen years since that infamous day, and over eleven years since the public release of the flawed and whitewashed "doomed to fail" final report of the "independent" bipartisan 9/11 Commission. To comprehend the extent of the omitted and misleading evidence of that final document is tantamount to learning and understanding a new language -- a language of deceit and cover-ups, of internal plots and schemes, and ultimately of obstruction and sabotage from within the U.S. government itself. 

I recently finished reading Mark Gaffney's excellent exposé of events leading up to that day -- and those that followed. If you're ready to delve into the intricacies, and plots and subplots that brought on that day, and explore the technologies that made it all possible, I invite you to take "A Walk on the Dark Side" (the actual title name of Chapter 3) and draw your own conclusions from Black 9/11: Money, Motive and Technology.

Not ready to shell out the $11 to $19 it'll cost you? Then try checking out your local library system. Mine doesn't have it (no surprise!), but yours might. If you're still not ready to take on the burden of burgeoning truth that becomes more and more apparent with each passing year, at least watch the embedded 39 minute video. In the video, Mr. Gaffney's work is presented in a very abbreviated form, obviously, but it presents the major plots and major players in a colossus web of utmost importance. If you can follow the money and players, and rehash it verbatim, forget the book. You're already an expert.

Forget the 9/11 Commission Report. It's a sham. Start connecting the dots, yourself, and commit to finding out what did happen that dreadful day -- or at least what didn't happen. One day the truth will prevail, but not without your help. As Mr. Gaffney concludes his epilogue:
"Sometimes, in order to see the light, it is necessary to wake up and face the darkness. Time may be short, but there is still a chance that our fellow citizens can be aroused, before it is too late. We must never give up, for so long as the Spirit dwells in the hearts of men and women, the future will be up for grabs ... and ours to win.
Please remember, and never forget: There is no statute of limitations for the crime of murder.

Intelligent Life Has Been Marginalized

Yeah, me again. I've been gone, but hopefully not forgotten. I published my last blog post on September 11, 2012 -- more than twenty-one months ago. I needed a break from the quiet hysteria of these modern times. A lot of water has gone under the bridge since then, but one thing has remained the same -- the corporate-state has continued to envelop and suffocate our culture, our communities, and our minds. Its relentless push -- carefully guarded by, and promoted through, the commercial media -- is shoving our species toward oblivion. There are great scholars and people of immense intelligence and understanding of this, who are sounding the alarm in a very articulated and profound way. People like Noam Chomsky, for example. Another is Chris Hedges. Professor Chomsky has been a burr under the saddle of the corporate-state for a long time. When he talks, I listen. When he talks to Chris Hedges, I listen even more attentively. Read what Chris Hedges has to share from a recent interview with Professor Chomsky -- the American Socrates.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—Noam Chomsky, whom I interviewed last Thursday at his office at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has influenced intellectuals in the United States and abroad in incalculable ways. His explications of empire, mass propaganda, the hypocrisy and pliability of the liberal class and the failings of academics, as well as the way language is used as a mask by the power elite to prevent us from seeing reality, make him the most important intellectual in the country. The force of his intellect, which is combined with a ferocious independence, terrifies the corporate state—which is why the commercial media and much of the academic establishment treat him as a pariah. He is the Socrates of our time.

We live in a bleak moment in human history. And Chomsky begins from this reality. He quoted the late Ernst Mayr, a leading evolutionary biologist of the 20th century who argued that we probably will never encounter intelligent extraterrestrials because higher life forms render themselves extinct in a relatively short time.

“Mayr argued that the adaptive value of what is called ‘higher intelligence’ is very low,” Chomsky said. “Beetles and bacteria are much more adaptive than humans. We will find out if it is better to be smart than stupid. We may be a biological error, using the 100,000 years which Mayr gives [as] the life expectancy of a species to destroy ourselves and many other life forms on the planet.”

For your consideration:

Nothing demonstrates the improbability of the origin of high intelligence better than the millions of ... lineages that failed to achieve it. How many species have existed since the origin of life? ... If there are 30 million living species, and if the average life expectancy of a species is about 100,000 years, then one can postulate that there have been billions, perhaps as many as 50 billion species since the origin of life. Only one of these achieved the kind of intelligence needed to establish a civilization.   --Ernst Mayr, Bioastronomy News, Third Quarter 1995

What Does "Accelerated Free-Fall" Mean? You're About to Find Out.

Millions of Americans don't know, although I'd venture a guess that most people in industrial or first-world nations around the globe do, that a third tower fell in New York City eleven years ago today. The first two towers of the World Trade Center Complex fell in mid-morning, soon after being struck by aircraft that we're told were commercial airliners flying under the American and United Airlines colors. 

But a third World Trade Center skyscraper, commonly known as World Trade Center Building #7, was a 47-story building that also came tumbling to the ground that day. This structure was never hit by an airplane, although it did sustain collateral damage mostly on the southwest side from the other buildings, and had scattered interior fires throughout. Despite the relatively limited external damage, and despite the fires that could never burn hot enough to melt structural steel -- much less weaken the steel support columns and cause them to fail simultaneously -- this building came tumbling to the ground in an accelerating free-fall, at approximately 5:20 p.m. EDT.

Following is a video that explains what happened. More accurately, it explains what didn't happen. The people interviewed are all experts in their respective fields; structural engineers, physicists, chemists, mechanical engineers, and highrise architects. They are agree what didn't happen. And what didn't happen is this: It didn't fall due to fire alone, and it didn't fall due to exterior damage alone. As a matter of fact, it didn't fall because of both reasons combined. But let's cut to the chase and tell you why it fell.

It was a controlled demolition.


End of Story.

Here's the video. Get your popcorn. Grab your Big Gulp. Learn how you've been duped.


(1)  If fire caused Building 7 to collapse, it would be the first ever fire-induced collapse of a steel-frame high-rise.

(2)  Building 7’s collapse was not mentioned in the 9/11 Commission Report.

(3)  According to a Zogby poll in 2006, 43% of Americans did not know about Building 7.

(4)  It took the federal government seven years to conduct an investigation and issue a report for Building 7.

(5)  1,700+ architects and engineers have signed a petition calling for a new investigation into the destruction of Building 7, specifying that it should include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives.

(6)  Numerous witnesses say the possibility of demolishing Building 7 was widely discussed by emergency personnel at the scene and advocated by the building’s owner.

(7)  Building 7 housed several intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and the NYC Office of Emergency Management’s Emergency Operations Center, more commonly known as “Giuliani’s Bunker”.
