9/11 Scholars Forum

Exposing Falsehoods and Revealing Truths

Sandy has suggested that we have a space for open discussion of topics that may be off-topic. That's fine with me. Let's see if the "Discussion" option will serve that purpose. Please give it a shot. Jim

I think 9/11 was an inside job, the photos were as fake as the story of Barbara Olsen's phone calls, it was done by unconventional means, and the passengers are still alive.

Having worked for a short time as a civilian on a military base, I know that the military uses child molestation to entrap people so that they can be blackmailed and controlled. A child-molesting ring was busted at the base where I worked. A guy had been molesting his grown daughters since they'd been infants and they never said a word because they were some kind of Christian fundamentalists who believed that the male head of the family can do whatever he wants. But they also condemned homosexuality, so when one of the daughters walked in and caught the guy raping his six-month-old grandson, she was afraid that the kid would grow up to be gay and went to the cops. Somehow they'd forgotten to explain to her that same-sex sex was okay as long as the one person was underage. The entire base defended the guy and everyone was so angry with the daughter for turning him in that she had to leave town. He got something like a 6-month sentence, if I remember correctly. The child-care center run by another known child-molester at the base remained open. I got fired for blowing the whistle on overt sexual and racial harassment and discrimination. Of the 3,000 civilian employees at that base, I believe there were three, including me, who weren't married or related to somebody else who worked there and didn't belong to a fundamentalist Christian church. It was a cesspool and was shut down years ago during a round of base closings.

As for truth, be it JFK truth or 9/11 truth, it simply isn't relevant to most people's lives. Those who rely on a government paycheck know enough to keep their mouths shut, go along to get along, don't rock the boat, and never question authority. Whistleblowers are quickly fired and thenceforth described as disgruntled former employees with no credibility. Anyone with credibility is not to be believed even if it seems like they're telling the truth. You can't stay in the system long enough to get credibility if you're not corrupt. There are a few exceptions like Jim and Dave Griscom, but for the most part it's a good rule of thumb.

I've been banned from various websites over the years for mentioning JFK, RFK, MLK, COINTELPRO, MKULTRA, racism, sexism, genocide for profit (the industry this country was founded upon and continues to this day), that slavery was never abolished (try abolishing the death penalty except as legal punishment for a crime, eh?), corporate rule, election fraud, the two-party good cop/bad cop scam, that we never had a democracy or a republic (if you can't hold your elected officials accountable DURING their terms of office, you cannot exercise your will through them--you can merely petition them the same way any subjects can petition tyrants), and other taboo topics.

I'm accustomed to the sort of mass attacks described by Lee, Thoth, and others above, where the moment I say something that isn't on the approved list, I get called names and piled on by teams of political party operatives, disinfo agents, astroturfers, and assorted other cyber-hit squads. I'm accustomed to having whole topics and sometimes even everything I've ever posted on that site deleted. I'm accustomed to being banned, or if they want to be cute, "permanently suspended," which is the same thing.

I don't have any credentials or credibility myself and I never did. but I've been on Jim's podcast and he can tell you, if he feels like it, that I know what I'm talking about. And I'm still learning.

So here's an off-topic for ya.

This country has never had free and fair elections. The Constitution put several firewalls between the popular vote and the Presidency. We have no right of recall at the federal level. Our Supreme court, an unelected body whose decisions cannot be appealed, is incompatible with the most basic principles of democracy. When the only two Presidential candidates with any chance of winning are both committed to wars and bailouts, the results of the "election," i.e., wars and bailouts, are predetermined no matter how many people vote or who they vote for, so it isn't an election. For there to be an election, there has to be more than one choice. If the President can be sworn into office before it is possible to finish counting the popular vote, you do not have a democratic form of government because power is not vested in the hands of the people and the popular vote does not determine the results of the "election."

The Declaration of Independence states that governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. They demonstrate this consent by holding elections. Your vote is your consent. It is your consent to be governed by whoever wins, not necessarily by who you voted for. In a recent Rasmussen Reports poll, only 21% of voters believed that this government has the consent of the governed. The other 79% don't understand that they gave their consent when they voted. A vote is not necessarily an indication of democracy. Stalin held elections, he required people to vote, he counted the votes, and he always won. Nobody fought and died for the right toi cast a vote in a Stalinist-style election where there is no way to verify that the votes were counted accurately. An uncounted or flipped (miscounted) vote is not a voice in government, it is not a precious right, it is consent to be governed by people who don't even bother to count your vote.

I'm an election boycott advocate. I don't think that the best way to bring about peace is by voting for war. I think that people who vote, who delegate their power, grant their authority, and give their consent of the governed to officials they can't hold accountable, don't care about their country or even about themselves, are totally irresponsible, and shouldn't be calling people who DO care, "apathetic."

During a President's term of office, they can cause irreparable harm. They can start, continue, or expand wars that kill millions of people, torture people they know to be innocent, allow the environment to be polluted in ways that can never be cleaned up, such as with depleted uranium, and such harms cannot be undone by voting for somebody different in a subsequent election. The dead cannot be brought back to life, the broken cannot be untortured, and the toxins in our air, food, water, and in our bodies and our children's and grandchildren's bodies, cannot be removed. Many of those toxins are cumulative.

But the potential benefits to be gained from elections, such as civil, human, or reproductive rights, health care, jobs, etc., are temporary and can be taken away by Congress, the Supreme Court, or a new election. For many, the possibility of temporary benefits outweighs the risks of permanent harms. These are not critical thinkers.

Those who encourage voting say that if you don't vote the bad guys will win. I guess they believe that our oligarchy consists of good guys because people voted.

They say that if you don't vote, you can't complain. King George didn't let the colonists vote and the Declaration of Independence is a long list of complaints. The right to gripe is an inalienable right, you don't get it by voting. If you complain that you got screwed, the first thing you're going to be asked is if you gave your consent. Your vote is your consent. If you vote, you can't complain because you consented. It may be that you're going to get screwed anyway, but you don't have to consent, and if you wish to preserve your right to complain it is probably a good idea not to consent.

They say that not voting is giving up and doing nothing. They'd rather keep jumping off the cliff than stop, take stock, and consider if they really want to go in that direction. It is better to do nothing than to do something that isn't in your own best interests.

They point to voter purges and attempts at disenfranchisement as evidence that the powers that be don't want people to vote. It doesn't occur to them that while a few million may be spent on preventing people from voting, over a billion will be spent on getting out the vote. The oligarchy doesn't spend a billion dollars getting out the vote because they don't want people to vote. The purges and disenfranchisement are attempts to make votes appear to be valuable. Uncounted votes aren't valuable. Votes in elections where the results are predetermined aren't valuable. Votes for candidates you can't hold accountable aren't valuable. The only value of a vote is that a tyranny can point to the fact that people voted as evidence that it has the consent of the governed.

Our CIA has been rigging elections in other countries for decades. Anyone who thinks they haven't been doing the same thing here, doesn't understand how the people who pulled off 9/11 got themselves in positions where they could control our air space, our media, any investigations, and anything else they needed to ensure that they could do whatever they wanted to do with absolute impunity. Vince Salandria and his group of early JFK assassination researchers nailed it--only those who can control the cover-up are capable of getting away with a crime.

I love open topics. Thanks, Jim and Sandy, and anyone who bothered to read this. ;)
This is a wonderful statement, Mark. I would love to have you back on the show to discuss it. Let's work it out.
I agree withyou 100%! When i finallly accepted that JFK, Robert Kennedy MLKing, Oklahoma City and 9/11 were conspiracies, I gave up on our country. I'm not voting again. It is a sham and a scam. You're right. The CIA/NSA and others do what they want. Whoever has the power can do what he/she/they please, including murder, disinformation perception management, starting wars, assassinate leaders of other countries, etc. I am selling everything and plan to take my dog and move elsewhere. Is there any hope whatsoever that the 9/11 conspirators; Bush and his men(women)? will be charged with mass murder?? r.s.

Ours friends at CTC will be featuring a show on conspiracies looks like sunday night. I will be real disappointed if the guest goes down one of those obfuscation roads so common to this field. I do not like the label CT, it implies "kook" and that was originally done by the CIA in the 60s to label guys like Mark Lane to cover their tracks on JFK. They saw it working then, so they superimposed it onto our modern situation, and now the young people , born in the dust, can't sort it out. Those evil SOBs knew what they were doing in terms of confusing the public and neutralizing the opposition. As I get each year older, I get more and more ticked off because I realize now that it was not only my generation they shafted, but now I see the young people and I wonder about their futures too.
If you mean "The Real Deal", it is broadcast M/W/F on revereradio.net from 5-7 PM/CT. It's archives may be found at http://radiofetzer.blogspot.com, where there are probably 200 programs on a wide range of different subjects. Thanks.

(1) 9/11 was
(a) a terrorist act: for sure
(i) involving 19 Islamic fundamentalists: not at all, Muslims are not involved
(ii) directed by Osama bin Landen from his cave: Not
(b) an inside job where: not only, also Israelis were involved
(i) the administration "let it happen": yes for the part made by Israelis
(ii) the administration "made it happen": Participated to the realization

The real answer is not included: 9/11 was made by 200 members of the “Israelis Spy Ring” (5 “dancing Israelis” were also member of those people) and the help, protection and participation of Bush Administration.

(2) The videos are
(a) authentic: most of them
(b) faked: some of them
(i) flying what'sits at the North Tower: a true 767
(ii) CGIs, compositing, or holograms at the South: no holograms, it was a 767

Useless question, asking such question is removing all credibility to the researches. Sure main videos were authentic, and only one being authentic is enough to tell the planes were there. All non authentic videos are made by “disinfo agents”. Why are we still discussing such crazy subjects?

(3) The "collapse" of the Twin Towers
(i) actually happened as the official account claims: false
(ii) represented a demolition under control: false
(a) using thermite and conventional explosives: false
(b) using unconventional methods, such as mini-nukes or some kind of directed-energy devices: false

Again the true answer is not there : There was no thermite involved in the collapse; radio controlled military explosives were used and placed at key places to make the towers collapse; Dr. Bazant probably participated to the preparation and conception of the demolition.

(4) The collapse of Building 7
(a) was collateral damage from the destruction of the Twin Towers: false
(b) was arranged and brought down by a classic controlled demolition: True

The answer is given, but this is a secondary subject; the collapse happened later, the main subject is the “strikes and the collapse of the twin towers”. That question only deviates the subject.

(5) The Pentagon attack
(a) really took place with a Boeing 757 hitting the building: false
(b) involved a fly-over by a Boeing 757 which did not hit the building: false
(c) involved a second, smaller plane that may have fired a missile into the building: false

The true answer is not given as choice: A smaller plane hit the Pentagon; it was sized same as a B737


(6) The Shanksville crash
(a) occurred just as the government has claimed (into a mining shaft or whatever)
(b) did not occur at all and is just as phony as the rest of the official story

The true answer is not in the choices: It occurred, but not like the official story told it.

(7) What happened to the passengers?
(a) they were killed in the plane crashes: For sure
(b) they were kidnapped and are in undisclosed secret locations: false
(c) they were mostly fabricated, just as fake as the rest of the official account: false

The answer is given, but it’s so simple answer that it’s meaningless face to the official story. These flight existed, they were regular flights, there were passengers on board, their lists were published quickly, … Why asking such question?

And nobody speaks out about the coordination between the planes that 4 separate teams could never make. This coordination is an obligatory outcome if the planes were controlled from outside of the plane by one team making one plane at a time, so the hijacks were successive. http://users.swing.be/mehmeti/

Why no researcher speaks out about this issue? And I am telling that to all groups since 2005?

The 9/11 truth movements are infiltrated and are being led by disinfo agents; as conclusion the confusion and wrong theories are pushed forward while nobody tries to give a global scenario explaining how the strikes were made.
Dr. Segarra,

The coast to coast is only broadcast live, I think, that one is already past the due date. If you check CTC website, they list programs in advance and sometimes they have shows on conspiracies and 911, but I think it is like midnight through 4 am, some terrible time . Local radio stations in all areas of USA carry coast to coast with George Noory and Ian Punnett.
Coast to Coast past shows can be found on youtube.
There were no plane crashes!
"Mehmet: Sure main videos were authentic, and only one being authentic is enough to tell the planes were there. All non authentic videos are made by “disinfo agents”. Why are we still discussing such crazy subjects?"

Please explain this in more detail. Are you saying that the videos we saw on 911 of the plane crash into south tower is different from the one we have today? I doubt that , because the one I saw all day on 911 looked exactly like one of the ones we see today. It looked that day like a CGI plane to me, and still does. I have a good memory and believe me, the one I saw on 911 had the same physically impossible features like today's "butter plane" where it glides in effortlessly with no damage. What was broadcast on 911 WAS an intent to fake out the public into thinking they were seeing real plane when they definitely were not.
Thoth, the athenticity of the videos was questioned by several theories:
- No plane theories, all videos are holograms! That's totally crazy.
- Planes were not the claimed ones, especially UA175 on WTC2; no windows visibles, so it was not a civil aircraft! This is a little bit less crazy, but at that altitide, and speed the windows were not visibles.

Any way, do not waste our time and credibility; after 9 years any theorist should be able to give a complete scenario of his theory. If you have any complete and evidence supported theory explaining how the strikes were made, and why they were made in such manner, I am listening you. Without such arguments, seperated alone arguments like the windows of the plane is useless, time, energy and credibility waste.

you are not fooling some of us with your multiple logical fallacies here. For example, the founder of this forum Jim Fetzer is a professional logician, and he could tear your logical fallacies to pieces. We here this banal fallacies over and over again throughout the media, from JFK through today, luckily we can now smell them a mile away. I could spend two pages debunking your fallacies, but I'll just comment on one easy one: after 9 years any theorist should be able to give a complete scenario of his theory" Why, praytell???? Sometimes it takes centuries for theories to be hammered out. And the only people who will ever be able to give a "complete scenario" are the perps who did it, and since their were so many of them, even the left hand doesn't necessarily know what the right hand is doing.

Bottom line is, you are certainly entitled to your opinion. But my point is, when we do serious 911 research we MUST follow established principles of scientific reasoning, such as (IBE) inference to best explanation, where knowledge is never perfect like you are suggesting, but several competing hypotheses try to explain the evidence and the one with highest likliehood will win out, but only TENTATIVELY, because more evidence might come along.
