If You Call Us Enough Names, Maybe We'll Just Go Away . . .

Rolling Stone, the magazine traditionally devoted to evangelizing tinnitus and brain damage, has attempted to fix its pot-addled focus on those in the 9/11 Truth effort in this latest cretinous yawp by Matt Taibbi. You can mix bullshit and bong-water and spread it on a Ritz and call it peanut butter, but the fact that you have set up a straw man and attempted to define the terms of the discussion doesn't make it so.

Taibbi fires the opening salvo neatly into his own foot, narrowly missing an artery: A few weeks ago I wrote a column on the anniversary of 9/11 that offhandedly dismissed 9/11 conspiracy theorists as "clinically insane." I expected a little bit of heat in response, but nothing could have prepared me for the deluge of fuck-you mail that I actually got. Apparently every third person in the United States thinks George Bush was behind the 9/11 attacks.

According to the poll conducted by the eminent John Zogby of Utica, it's more like forty-two percent of the American public, Matty-boy, who believe that elements within the government were either directly complicit or complicit through negligence in the events of September 11. 2001. Are all those people "clinically insane," or just not responding to your illiterate bullying? (Maybe that's why they're building detention camps--to house all us "crazy people.") But "George Bush was behind" 9/11? Here entereth the Straw Man.

The Straw Man is rampant throughout, with Taibbi affixing his homemade labels to that personage: 9/11 Truth is the lowest form of conspiracy theory, because it doesn't offer an affirmative theory of the crime. The whole basis of the 9/11 Truth effort isn't to try to come up with a Grand Theory of Everything as a template to fit over the events of that day. That's basically what the so-called Official Version does, and is hence the real "conspiracy theory." What 9/11 Truth is supremely about is to debunk the official conspiracy theory, by showing inconsistencies, omissions, and distortions in its narrative.

9/11 Truth has more questions than answers--and they're questions that prats like Taibbi can't be bothered to ask. He's too worried that "every time one of those Loose Change dickwads opens his mouth, a Republican somewhere picks up five votes." It might astonish Taibbi (since he cherishes the phony Right/Left paradigm so dearly) that a huge portion of those in the 9/11 Truth effort consider themselves "conservative." Those traditional conservatives have been emitting the most fiery rhetoric in outrage over the 9/11 cover-up. The Left truly is Home of the Gatekeepers, who wish the controversy would die down so they could get back to telling their hilarious "Bush is stupid" jokes. They're worried that the 9/11 ruckus will backfire on their Artificial Democrats.

But Taibbi is right--9/11 Truth is lousy conspiracy theory, because it's not conspiracy theory at all. At its best, it's all about physics, metallurgy, chemistry, and logic. We'd rather leave the conspiracy theory to the conspirators.

The Regressive Goes Medieval on 9/11 Truth

Or, "Doin' the Red-Shield Red Ass"

UPDATE: Jim Fetzer's riposte to Rothschild's horse-twaddle.

THIS is why I've abandoned the so-called Left. Matt Red-Shield is even more disgusting than his gatekeeper colleague, Mr. Nude Sunbathing Hazard.

Isn't amazing that Bush is mumbling hints about "bombs in buildings" when all these phony oppo creeps are slinging mud at anyone who counters the OLD official story? Rothschild quotes all the usual suspects, and that includes government sources. Might the fact that we had an actual coup in 2000 not taint their findings? "Scientists" can be anyone's whores--just like "journalists." He also cites two web references (to "debunk some of the 9/11 myths") that are cheesy and partisan.

I regret to say that I subscribe to the rag in question--and, unlike the Nation, it doesn't even boast a decent crossword puzzle. (The name "Rothschild" itself will throw a blip on certain radar screens, but that's not for me to delve into.) The Right Wing and the Left Wing should just get together and fly away. They're already playing footsie under the table. Bastards. Who needs 'em?

Tuesday, September 19, 2006


HERE'S your "mastermind":

Ladies and Gentlemen, our tap-dancing President:

Bush: For example, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed described the design of planned attacks of buildings inside the U.S. and how operatives were directed to carry them out. That is valuable information for those of us who have the responsibility to protect the American people. He told us the operatives had been instructed to ensure that the explosives went off at a high -- a point that was high enough to prevent people trapped above from escaping.

That's right--'cause if you placed the bombs BELOW them, they could easily escape.

He's losin' it. Big time. So, if these theoretical Islamo-fanatics were able to get into the THREE buildings of the WTC, what of brother Marvin, who was supposed to be minding the store? (Marvin sits at the kid's table at Kennebunkport this Thanksgiving, I guess.) Dubya's talk of bombs in the buildings also makes the editors of Popular Alchemics look like imbeciles, rather than mere morons. Suddenly that Kool-Aid don't taste so good--eh, boys?

They're clutching at straws, and spinning like crazy. This, of course, means that we're winning. By changing their story, they've already given themselves away.

My Letter to Leonard Pitts, Jr.

UPDATE: Pitts isn't going to appear at Hamilton College, but Utica College, on Sept. 28. I knew Hamilton had a little more class than that.

Dear Mr. Pitts,

Though the rift is not likely permanent, I consider that your recent column slamming the 9/11 truth effort is the cause of the present emotional estrangement between my wife and I. She still likes you. I'm afraid I'm less kindly disposed.

So be it. I regret to say that I'm one of those malcontents that you've attempted to humiliate and discredit with your Straw Man diatribe--and yet I stand before you bloodied but undaunted. I never expected you to climb aboard the 9/11 truth-seeking bandwagon, but I am disappointed by your campaign to slash its tires and pour sand into its crankcase.

I never wanted to devote any time and energy to this effort, but the facts, as they emerged, proved so compelling that I couldn't ignore the evidence. I suspect that a huge portion of the American public will concur that there are serious problems with the official explanation--and that elements within our government are likely complicit in the attacks. The recent John Zogby poll puts the number as high as 70 million. You've just grievously insulted all of them.

I'm sure that many of those people were fans of yours up to the minute they discovered that you consider them foil-hatted zanies. Who needs 'em, right? In fact, my wife, who still thinks that you can do no wrong, came home from work on 9/11/2001 and said, "Bush did it." I said, "Well, I don't know . . ."

I still don't know--and neither do you. Nor does the so-called 9/11 Commission. All I know is that of all the explanations offered, the one put forward by the government is the least likely. (I won't trouble you with data--no doubt you've already had reams of that from other correspondents.)

When my wife goes to hear you speak at Hamilton College, I want you to single her out and say, "Mrs. Senior, you're an idiot for believing Bush did it." She'll love it.

I defy anyone with all but the stoniest heart to listen to THIS PROGRAM and not be moved. This is what we're fighting for. On 9/11, three thousand people were killed in a false-flag terror attack perpetrated by elements within our government (and other heartless, soulless megalomaniacal bastards). The villains who brought down the three buildings then lied, and told rescue workers and residents of lower Manhattan that the air was safe to breathe. Here are the dying heroes of 9/11, telling their stories.

(The individual speeches may be downloaded at this link.)

We Used to Like Leonard Pitts, until . . .

I haven't the heart to deconstruct Leonard Pitts' vile hit piece. He has written with such good sense in the past that this comes as a vast disappointment. Fortunately, PDX 9/11 TRUTH ALLIANCE has saved me all the trouble in commenting further.

Send Leonard Pitts an email and set him straight on the facts of the case. Let him know that straw man cheap shots will not be tolerated.

UPDATE: Download or listen to this program HERE. We're on in the second half hour. Thanks again to Eric for a lively interview!

Herb Smith and I will appear with Eric Kuhn on Kuhn and Co. Monday, September 11 at 4 PM ET on WHCL. Eric has achieved national attention for having such luminaries as Mayor Ed Koch, Cindy Sheehan, and Tucker Carlson on his Hamilton College program.

Many thanks to Eric for inviting us to appear!

Financially as well as morally.

I'd shed a tear, but these ineffectual bozos missed too many opportunities for telling the truth. When you're dealing with a CIA-backed master propagandist and phony populist like Pudge Limpdick, you'd better offer Vern and Edna something more nourishing than the usual controlled oppo gruel. Air Anemia dumped their only actual truthseeker before lapsing into Cheyne-Stokes programming. Stand by for more Hegelian horseshit until the plug is mercifully yanked.

Loose Change vs. Popular Alchemics on Oligarchy Now!

I believe Hell has frozen over. I am about to link to the exchange between the Loose Change team (Dylan Avery and Jason Bermas) and the head obfuscators at Popular Alchemics (James Meigs and David Dunbar) on Amy ("I love Noam") Goodman's daily gatekeeping romp, Democracy, No. Okay--stand back--HERE IT IS!

Is it getting chilly in here, or is it me?

BIG P.S.: If the prospect of listening to A.G. makes you want to sigh in technicolor, UNWELCOME GUESTS has a great 9/11 show available for download. Lyn Gerry is the REAL alt-radio Diva.

Herb was driving through Ilion last night and met Todd Mongillo, who is involved with the company that made Loose Change. He sent a note about a 9/11 rally they are planning for Monday in Mohawk, with a Remembrance Walk to follow. 9/11 Truth speaks out in the Mohawk Valley!

Here is Todd's announcement:

. . .I just wanted to let you guys know that I'm trying to get a rally together in Mohawk in front of the park on Main Street right by the high school. As of right now only a few people are gonna show up cause of work conflicts and stuff along those lines. You guys are more than welcome to join after your radio show if you'd like. We'll probably be out there most of the day. Then at 6 PM there is a Rememberance Walk that starts in Ilion and goes right through Mohawk to Herkimer, at that point me and whoever else will be standing at the corner of Main Street and Route 28 in front of Laurence Paul's Fuels. If you can make it that'd be great, if not, understandable. Thanks for being a big help with this movement in the Valley.

Steven Jones Powerpoint Presentation

Can be downloaded here.

(1) A Hazard of Nude Sunbathing; (2) A Left Gatekeeper

The second definition of "Cockburn" will suffice for this post. Alexander Cockburn has shown just how far he has his head up the ass of the Powers That Be with a column in the current Nation magazine. He lies, he plays the Ward Churchill "racism" card, he says his brother has "seen" evidence (and doesn't disclose it), he insults David Ray Griffin, he ignores the matter of Building Seven, he draws false analogies like crazy. For those of you who don't subscribe to the Nation (which I do--for the crossword puzzle) here is the full text of his odious, mendacious rant (commentary in italics mine):

Beat the devil by Alexander Cockburn
The 9/11 Conspiracy Nuts

[from the September 25, 2006 issue]

You trip over one fundamental idiocy of the 9/11 conspiracy nuts in the first paragraph of the book by one of their high priests, David Ray Griffin, The New Pearl Harbor. "In many respects," Griffin writes, "the strongest evidence provided by critics of the official account involves the events of 9/11 itself.... In light of standard procedures for dealing with hijacked airplanes...not one of these planes should have reached its target, let alone all three of them." [Picking on DRG is a good way to get me pissed off in a hurry. I suppose you kick puppies when no one is looking.]

The operative word here is "should." One central characteristic of the nuts is that they have a devout, albeit preposterous, belief in American efficiency, and hence many of them start with the racist premise that "Arabs in caves" weren't capable of the mission. [You should send Ward Churchill a dollar for that swipe. Do you also believe the people in the Towers were "little Eichmans?" What tribe are you going to claim you're from?] They believe that military systems work the way Pentagon press flacks and aerospace salesmen say they should work. They believe that at 8:14 am, when AA Flight 11 switched off its radio and transponder, an FAA flight controller should have called the National Military Command center and NORAD. They believe, citing reverently (this from high priest Griffin) "the US Air Force's own website," that an F-15 could have intercepted AA Flight 11 "by 8:24, and certainly no later than 8:30." [I invite you to Google "Payne Stewart" and discover just how quickly the USAF intercepted and escorted his doomed plane. These guys are very good at what they do when allowed to do it.]

They appear to have read no military history, which is too bad because if they had they'd know that minutely planned operations--let alone responses to an unprecedented emergency--screw up with monotonous regularity, by reason of stupidity, cowardice, venality and other whims of Providence. [Yet, with all their mistakes--and there were plenty--they were able to shock and bamboozle the American people with the gruesome magic show on 9/11/2001.]

According to the minutely prepared plans of the Strategic Air Command, an impending Soviet attack would have prompted the missile silos in North Dakota to open and the ICBMs to arc toward Moscow and kindred targets. The tiny number of test launches actually attempted all failed, whereupon SAC gave up testing. Was it badly designed equipment, human incompetence, defense contractor venality or... conspiracy? [Where's the analogy? We weren't going to shoot down the "hijacked" airliners (?) with ICBMs!] Did the April 24, 1980, effort to rescue the hostages in the US Embassy in Tehran fail because a sandstorm disabled three of the eight helicopters, or because agents of William Casey poured sugar into their gas tanks in yet another conspiracy? [Now you're just being silly.]

Do the military's varying attempts to explain why F-15s didn't intercept and shoot down the hijacked planes stem from predictable attempts to cover up the usual screw-ups, or because of conspiracy? Is Mr. Cohen in his little store at the end of the block hiking his prices because he wants to make a buck, or because his rent just went up, or because the Jews want to take over the world? Bebel said anti-Semitism is the socialism of fools. These days the 9/11 conspiracy fever is fast becoming the "socialism" of the left. [And Alexander Cockburn is the Fool-Gatekeeper of Socialists. Listen, Cock--most of the 9/11 Truthers I know are either Independent or Conservative. The Lefties, by and large, are still lapping up the Kool-Aid dispensed by the 9/11 Commission and the Mainstream Media. They hate Bush more than they love the truth.]

My in-box overflows each day with fresh "proofs" of how the towers were demolished. I meet people who start quietly, asking me what I think about 9/11. What they are actually trying to find out is whether I'm part of the coven. [Here beginneth ye false analogy.] I imagine it is like being a normal Stoic in the second century AD going for a stroll in the forum and meeting some fellow asking, with seeming casualness, whether it's possible to feed 5,000 people on five loaves of bread and a couple of fish.

Indeed, at my school the vicar used to urge on us Frank Morison's book Who Moved the Stone? It demonstrated, with exhaustive citation from the Gospels, that since on these accounts no human had moved the stone from in front of Joseph of Arimathea's tomb, it must have been an angel who rolled it aside, so Jesus could exit, astonish the mourners and then ascend. Of course, Morison didn't allow the possibility that angels never existed or that the Gospel writers were making it up. [The Gospel writers didn't have hundreds of hours of first-run news footage, private videos, dozens of eyewitness accounts, seismic readings, and the laws of physics to assist them. Nobody's making this 9/11 shit up, Cock.]

It's the same pattern with the 9/11 nuts. There are photos of the impact of the "object" that hit the Pentagon--i.e., the Boeing 757, Flight 77--that seem to show the sort of hole a missile might make. Ergo, it was a missile and a 757 didn't hit the Pentagon. As regards the hole, my brother Andrew--writing a book about Rumsfeld--has seen photos taken within thirty minutes of impact clearly showing the outline of an entire plane, including wings. This was visible as soon as the smoke blew away. [Perhaps your brother would like to share some of these alleged photos with us. That would be a quick way to get us to shut up.]

And if it was a missile, what happened to the 757? Did the conspirators shoot it down somewhere else, or force it down and then kill the passengers? Why plan to demolish the towers with pre-placed explosives if your conspiracy includes control of the two planes that hit them? Why bother with the planes at all? Why blame Osama if your fall guy is Saddam Hussein? [The planes were necessary for the spectacle of it all. The 19 Islamo-fanatic hijackers with boxcutters were part of the scenario. And it had to be Osama--could you imagine Saddam inspiring anyone to die so stupidly? The script, man--the script. Can't you try to think like an American for five minutes? Without the planes, it's just insurance fraud.]

The demolition scenario is classic who-moved-the-stonery. The towers didn't fall because they were badly built as a consequence of corruption, incompetence, regulatory evasions by the Port Authority and because they were struck by huge planes loaded with jet fuel. [Yeah, it's astonishing that those cheapo towers didn't snap like twigs at the first sign of a stiff breeze.] No, they collapsed because Dick Cheney's agents methodically planted demolition charges in the preceding days. It was a conspiracy of thousands, all of whom--party to mass murder--have held their tongues ever since. [Just like how the thousands involved in the Manhattan Project blabbed and lost us World War Two, and now we all speak Ger--oh, wait. . .]

Of course, the buildings didn't suddenly pancake. People inside who survived the collapse didn't hear a series of explosions. [Cock, your pants are on fire. Does that mean your knees will pancake?] As discussed in Wayne Barrett and Dan Collins's marvelous Grand Illusion, about Rudy Giuliani and 9/11, helicopter pilots radioed warnings nine minutes before the final collapse of the South Tower that it might well go down, and similar warnings, repeatedly, as much as twenty-five minutes before the North Tower's fall.

What Barrett and Collins brilliantly show are the actual corrupt conspiracies on Giuliani's watch (see also their article in this issue); the favoritism to Motorola, which saddled the firemen with radios that didn't work; the ability of the Port Authority to scrimp on fire protection; the mayor's catastrophic failure in the years before 9/11 to organize an effective emergency command, meaning that many lives could have been saved, cops and firemen could have communicated and firemen could have heard the helicopter warnings and the Mayday messages that saved most of the police. That's the real world, in which Giuliani and others have never been held accountable. Instead, the conspiracy nuts have combined to produce a ludicrous distraction. [Hey, Cock--what about Building Seven? I said, "What about Building Seven?" I repeat, "WHAT ABOUT BUILDING SEVEN!?" CAN YOU HEAR ME!?]

The Docudrama I'd Like to See

My friend Dave at Republicans are Idiots posted this scenario in response to the recent flap over the ABC 9/11 movie. My response? Hell, yeah!!

(Not that Clinton was a Boy Scout, but give the Devil his due.)

Tom Paine Rolls In His Grave

This piece of cheese just plopped in my inbox. This guy has had too many malteds at the the Limited Hangout. Here's a juicy:

There’s a job to be done in getting the Bush administration to behave in a legal, responsible fashion. [A job on a par with getting Satan to attend Sunday School, perhaps?] All this effort devoted to finding the truth of 9/11 might contribute to that, except that the questions are too minute. Arguing the kinetic energy of a Boeing 767 hitting the Trade Center with a given fuel load, the structural integrity of the building itself, or the actual time of impact on Pennsylvania soil of United Airlines Flight 93 does not trace complicity into the Oval Office. [No, it might have been space aliens, at that.] Even finding that the Pentagon really was hit by a missile and not an airplane, or that Flight 93 was actually shot down, would not necessarily implicate the White House or prove the grand conspiracy theory. [True, it's not like any of these guys benefited from it or anything.] Many of the questions can only lead to more questions. [Like, "Are you a paid government shill?"] A whole new level of evidence [i.e., a Cheney deathbed confession] would be necessary to establish whether complicity exists.

My wife and I attended a rally here in Utica for Gubernatorial candidate Eliot Spitzer. We managed to slip him a Uticans for 9/11 Truth business card, and I said, "Forty percent of Americans want a new investigation into 9/11. This is very important to us."

We have to push forward on all fronts. And if those higher up in power hear it from enough of us, we may have some effect. As NY Attorney General, Spitzer should have investigated Larry Silverstein, Marvin Bush, et al., ages ago. Whatever his rationale, he needs to know that a huge percentage of the population isn't buying it.

E-mail Eliot Spitzer and let him know that we'd like the real 9/11 criminals prosecuted.

Barrie Zwicker on 9/11

Excellent interview, with good sound, of Barrie Zwicker--one of the first journalists to "get it." (He's Canadian, and hence just outside the main range of the American Media Brain-Death Ray.) Barrie emphasizes that people in the 9/11 Truth effort need to stop calling each other names, and gets in a couple of nice digs at the Ol' Gatekeeper, Noam Chomsky--may his sweaters unravel!

"Deconstructing Deception"

UPDATE: Actually, only the first hour of this show is concerned with 9/11--but the second hour (a chapter from John Taylor Gatto's The Underground History of American Education) is very much worth listening to.

Lyn Gerry, a broadcaster in the Finger Lakes Region (WEOS-FM), produced an excellent two-hour program on 9/11 today as part of the Unwelcome Guests radio series. Included is the most recent David Ray Griffin interview (on the NORAD tapes) from "Guns and Butter." Download it HERE.

Herb Smith of Uticans for 9/11 Truth gets to the point with laser-like precision in today's O-D. HERE is his concise demolition of the Pancake Theory. (It wasn't IHOP--it was MIHOP.) I can hear the ad hominem boys sharpening their Crayolas already.
