« Blood Money Translates Into Big Money | Main | Why Birthers, Too, Should Always Wear Their Motorcycle Helmets »

Another Reason To Wear Motorcycle Helmets

      Biker blogger Bruce Arnold, purveyor of the peculiar logic that motorcycle helmets are more of a danger than riding bare headed (crazy but not so crazy that it kept the Florida legislature from tossing the state’s mandatory helmet law), has inadvertently proven quite that brains need protecting.

      Arnold, of the Bikers Forum, has veered out of the mainstream to ride with the 9-11 “truthers,” who cling to the world’s biggest conspiracy theory. Maybe, it was one too many spills without a helmet.

      Arnold writes:     

      I now have reason to believe that "9/11" may have been an inside job. I have a good idea as to what might have happened, and recognize that our government's official story defies both physics and logic. I also have a good idea as to who might have been behind the attacks, and what their motives might have been for staging them. What I do NOT have with any certainty, however, is the ACTUAL TRUTH about what happened to our nation on 11 September 2001.

 

      Looking for a responsible adult to support the truther movement, Arnold brings in the former attorney general of New Jersey and a member of the 9-11 commission.   

    

      The 9/11 Commission Report has been exposed as almost entirely untrue by John Farmer, the Dean of Rutgers School of Law--Newark who served as Senior Counsel to the Commission. In short, THEY LIED. As that is now public knowledge, it is time for Americans to ask some tough questions, and for once in our history, insist on the real answers. Specifically, I hereby call on all who read this to contact their United States Senators and Representatives and DEMAND a new, impartial and independent investigation to uncover for once and for all the Truth about 9/11.

 

      Unhappily for Arnold, what Farmer actually maintains is that the upper reaches of the government and military were caught utterly unprepared by the attacks. That our federal government reaction was one of incompetence. And tried to hide the incompetence.

      In an Oct. 16 interview with Newsweek, Farmer, now dean of Rutgers Law School, definitely did not endorse the truther’s explanation for 9-11. Asked about the conspiracy theories, Farmer said: 

      Well, it's just simply not true. I understand some of the impetus for these conspiracy theories because when the government hasn't told the truth about something, and that comes to light, then people's imaginations are sort of free to run wild.     

      Farmer explained the 9-11 reaction:

      What happened on 9/11 was simply a trailing consequence of all the malfunctions of government that had occurred in the prior 10 years. In virtually every department, there was a growing awareness of the threat of al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden through the '90s. What people who were engaged with the outside threat encountered was incredible inertia at the bureaucratic level that really prevented the government from effectively reconfiguring itself against the threat. 

      Farmer added:

      The fundamental ineffectiveness of the government. And when I saw the same kind of pattern emerge in response to Katrina, it really brought it home for me. Katrina was not a surprise. Yet you still had a very similar dynamic play out with Katrina, where you had the top levels of government talking to themselves and estranged from people on the ground reacting to it.

 

      The lesson here. Wear your helmet. Keep your brain from being scrambled.

"Grimm Truth" My Iron Butt, Fred:

How you manage to keep your job in trying times amazes me, given all the lies the Miami Herald inks for you. For your edification, Einstein, my position on helmet usage is the same as that of the American Motorcyclist Association:

http://www.ldrlongdistancerider.com/motorcyclists_rights/bikersrights0904.php

I have NEVER opposed the use of motorcycle helmets. I own and regularly use four of them. I only oppose laws mandating helmet usage--and for very good reasons--and you'll find no quote from me anywhere suggesting otherwise. So I'll expect a published retraction and apology on that point from the Miami Herald within ... Check that, I could care less.

As for John Farmer ... ALMOST EVERYTHING YOU WROTE IS WRONG. For one thing, Farmer was never "a member of the 9-11 commission". He was their Senior Counsel, as I correctly stated. And he is not now "Dean of Rutgers Law School", but rather Dean of ONE of the Rutgers Law Schools, again as I correctly stated.

AND AS FOR "9/11" ... had you actually read Farmer's book, you'd know his objective was primarily to distance himself as far as he could from the lies of the "9/11 [Commission|Omission] Report" while saying as little as possible about what the truth actually was. And as for that, I challenge any rational person of at least average intelligence to watch this video and then tell me what our government told us is "the truth":

http://www.ae911truth.org/flashmov11.htm

Please ask your editors to find someone meeting those criteria to watch this two-hour technical presentation, Grimm, and have them convey their findings. Perhaps, if they use simple charts and small words, even you will get it...

John W. Wright

Let's see what the former U.S. Senator from Minnesota, Mark Dayton (2001 - 2006), has to say:

"They [NORAD] lied to the American people, they lied to Congress and they lied to your 9/11 Commission. ... For almost three years now NORAD officials and FAA officials have been able to hide their critical failures that left this country defenseless during two of the worst hours in our history."

How about Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy, JD:

"And, of course, the two questions that the Congress would not ask, because the Republicans won't allow it, is, why did 9/11 happen on George Bush's watch when he had clear warnings that it was going to happen? Why did they allow it to happen? And secondly, when they had Osama bin Laden cornered, why didn't they get him? Had there been an independent congress, one that could ask questions, these questions would have been asked years ago."

Louis Freeh, former Director of the FBI:

"Even the most junior investigator would immediately know that the name and photo ID of Atta in 2000 is precisely the kind of tactical intelligence the FBI has many times employed to prevent attacks and arrest terrorists. Yet the 9/11 Commission inexplicably concluded that it "was not historically significant." This astounding conclusion--in combination with the failure to investigate Able Danger and incorporate it into its findings--raises serious challenges to the commission's credibility and, if the facts prove out, might just render the commission historically insignificant itself. … No wonder the 9/11 families were outraged by these revelations and called for a "new" commission to investigate."

Now, let's hear from someone directly involved in investigating 9/11 before September 11th, 2001; Coleen Rowley – Former Special Agent and Minneapolis Division Counsel, FBI.  24-year FBI career:

"The fact is that key FBIHQ personnel whose job it was to assist and coordinate with field division agents on terrorism investigations and the obtaining and use of FISA searches (and who theoretically were privy to many more sources of intelligence information than field division agents), continued to, almost inexplicably, throw up roadblocks and undermine Minneapolis' by-now desperate efforts to obtain a FISA search warrant, long after the French intelligence service provided its information and probable cause became clear. HQ personnel brought up almost ridiculous questions in their apparent efforts to undermine the probable cause. ...

When, in a desperate 11th hour measure to bypass the FBIHQ roadblock, the Minneapolis Division undertook to directly notify the CIA's Counter Terrorist Center (CTC), FBIHQ personnel actually chastised the Minneapolis agents for making the direct notification without their approval ...

I know I shouldn't be flippant about this, but jokes were actually made that the key FBIHQ personnel had to be spies or moles, like Robert Hansen, who were actually working for Osama Bin Laden to have so undercut Minneapolis' effort."
"And what I did was, I think, I put the first good dent in the blanket defense that for 8 and a half, 9 months, was holding - that 9/11 could not have been prevented.

... we were all settling for, ‘9/11 could not have been prevented’, it was ‘hindsight’. Condi Rice, "Well, no one could have ever imagined that someone would fly…" and of course, when she says that, she’s disregarding a whole bunch of things. People are letting her get away with it. She’s disregarding the fact of two or three prior incidents of people trying to fly planes into buildings, attempted takeovers of cockpits…We’re also ignoring the fact that in Minneapolis [FBI office], the acting supervisor, arguing with [FBI] headquarters said, ‘This is a guy [Zacarias Moussaoui] that could fly a plane into the World Trade Center’ on August 22nd!"

Finally, please read what former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds has to say:

“I saw papers that show the U.S. knew al-Qaeda would attack cities with airplanes… I gave [the 9-ll Commission] details of specific investigation files, the specific dates, specific target information, specific managers in charge of the investigation. This is not hearsay. These are things that are documented.”

http://patriotsquestion911.com/

If you analyze the government's story closely, you will find that not one element of their conspiracy theory is credibly supported by the facts.

We need a new investigation into the events of 9/11/01.

Physics, facts and logic prove that the government's conspiracy theory of 9/11 cannot be true.

The truth shall set us free.  Love is the only way forward.

John W. Wright

Mr. Grimm -

Let's look at what a few more people of note have to say about the events of 9/11/01 and the need for a new investigation:

Former Senator and former 9/11 Commissioner Max Cleland:

"It is a national scandal. This [9/11] investigation is now compromised."

"This [9/11 Commission] is a scam," Cleland said. "It's disgusting. America is being cheated."

William Christison - Former Director of the CIA's Office of Regional and Political Analysis, overseeing 250 CIA analysts. 29-year CIA veteran:

"I now think there is persuasive evidence that the events of September did not unfold as the Bush administration and the 9/11 Commission would have us believe. ... An airliner almost certainly did not hit The Pentagon. ... The North and South Towers of the World Trade Center almost certainly did not collapse and fall to earth because hijacked aircraft hit them."

Melvin Goodman, PhD - Former Division Chief of the CIA's Office of Soviet Affairs and Senior Analyst from 1966 - 1990:

"The final [9/11 Commission] report is ultimately a coverup. I don't know how else to describe it."

Robert Baer – Former CIA Case Officer, Specialist in the Middle East, Directorate of Operations.  Awarded Career Intelligence Medal.  21-year CIA veteran:

"There are enough discrepancies and unanswered questions in the 9/11 Commission Report that under a friendly administration, the 9/11 investigation should be re-opened."

J. Michael Springmann – Former career Foreign Service Officer with the State Department and the International Foreign Trade Administration of the Commerce Department.  Former Consular Officer in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where he supervised the issuance of visas. 20-year Federal Government career.

"I used to be in charge of the visa section at the CIA's Consulate in Jeddah. ... There for a year and a half I issued visas to terrorists recruited by the CIA and its asset Osama Bin Laden. ... Fifteen of the nineteen people who allegedly flew airplanes into buildings in the United States got their visas from the same CIA Consulate at Jeddah."
"In Saudi Arabia I was repeatedly ordered by high level State Dept officials to issue visas to unqualified applicants. These were, essentially, people who had no ties either to Saudi Arabia or to their own country. I complained bitterly at the time there. I returned to the US, I complained to the State Dept here, to the General Accounting Office, to the Bureau of Diplomatic Security and to the Inspector General's office. I was met with silence. ...

What I was protesting was, in reality, an effort to bring recruits, rounded up by Osama Bin Laden, to the US for terrorist training by the CIA. They would then be returned to Afghanistan to fight against the then-Soviets."

Terrell (Terry) E. Arnold, MA – Former Deputy Director, Office of Counter-Terrorism and Emergency Planning, U.S. State Department. Former Chairman, Department of International Studies, National War College. Graduate of the National War College. Retired Senior Foreign Service Officer of the U.S. Department of State. He has served as a security and crisis management consultant for several Fortune 500 companies. He also served as a crisis management consultant for several Federal agencies, including The State Department, the Department of Defense, the U.S. Customs Service and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. U.S. Navy veteran of World War II and Korean conflict:

"More than five years after the fact, Washington leadership keeps the American people fixated on the events of 9/11. They have brought us no closer than we were on September 12, 2001 to resolving how it was executed and by what enemy. They tell us repeatedly that it was the work of al Qaida, but they have yet to show us the proofs. They told us the official version of what happened that day, but their story is laced with contradictions, and the facts visible on the ground at the time belie much of the official account. Our leadership gave us a Sopranos blank screen ending to a terrible tragedy, while working below the radar to avoid our established laws and slowly to destroy our democratic institutions. Every American must look carefully at the pattern of decay that began with 9/11. ...

As an alleged post 9/11 defense, the War on Terrorism is a gigantic fraud. ...

We cannot let a single criminal act, the facts and perpetrators of which are still obscure, destroy our society. With all respect due to those who lost family and friends in the attacks of 9/11, there is no evident search for justice, truth or our future safety in the US government actions outlined in this paper. Instead we are watching the most brutal power games of our times that benefit the few at the expense of the rest of us." 

I could post quotes from experts for the next month, or you can go to:

USAToday did a poll and found that only 24% trusted the media. Mr. Grimm's treatment on the subject of 9/11 is a superlative example why.
It is typical to challenge opposing views by implying brain damage rather than actually giving consideration to an alternative opinion.
There are those who simply parrot information that has been spoon fed by the media and government sources (BTW,the same poll only gave the government 6% in the trust factor), and then there are those who actually think about what they have been told and compare it to evidence, science and common sense.
Mr. Grimm demonstrates clearly why the American people have fallen so far behind in the ability to utilize cognitive skills. The relentless assault by means of ridicule and comedic insults tends to intimidate those who DO think into silence. This seems to be a prerequisite to clawing your way up the "journalistic" ladder. That is, if you can call it journalism.
I call it propagandizing, having more concern in protecting a paycheck rather than protecting the rights and freedoms of his own unborn grandchildren.
Thank you Mr. Grimm, for lowering the standards yet another notch.
I'd like to hear your response to your grandchild when he or she asks, "What did YOU do to preserve my rights?"
Your silence will be telling.

Dave vonKleist

BTW Fred, you might try a larger size helmet and give you brain some room to expand, that is if your job for the Herald still allows that kind of activity.

As I have viewed eight years of pictures of the devastation of the WTC I've seen dozens of pictures and video of major structural steel as straight as an arrow with the ends burned. If a steel building could collapse, every piece of steel would be twisted,torn,bent and buckled. This is not the case,can you refute me?

Robert Ballan

Government incompetence is a thin disguise for the September 11, 2001, debacle. The only incompetence that I see in relation to the events of that day is that the corporate owned news outlets. Their longstanding refusal to seriously explore the factual misstatements of the 911 Commission Report and the quasi-scientific sources it uncritically drew upon is another example of a shameful tradition of shoddy journalism that you continue.

An honest investigation of the 911 controversy would focus on facts rather than persons.

James H. Fetzer

How we know the "official account" of 9/11 is in fact a myth:

1. The impact of planes cannot have caused enough damage to bring the buildings down, since the buildings were designed to withstand them (as Frank DeMartini, the project manager, has observed), the planes alleged to have hit were similar to those they were designed to withstand, and the buildings continued to stand after those impacts with negligible effects.

2. The melting point of steel at 2,800 degrees F is about 1,000 degrees higher than the maximum burning temperature of jet-fuel-based fires, which do not exceed 1,800 degrees under optimal conditions; but the NIST examined 236 samples of steel and found that 233 had not been exposed to temperatures above 500 degrees F and the others not above 1200.

3. Underwriters Laboratory certified the steel in the buildings up to 2,000 degrees F for three or four hours without any significant effects, where these fires burned neither long enough or hot enough—at an average temperature of about 500 degrees for about one hour in the South Tower and one and a half in the North—to weaken, much less melt.

4. If the steel had melted or weakened, then the affected floors would have displayed completely different behavior, with some degree of asymmetrical sagging and tilting, which would have been gradual and slow, not the complete, abrupt and total demolition that was observed. Which means the NIST cannot even explain the initiation of any “collapse” sequence.

5. William Rodriguez, who was the senior custodian in the North Tower and the last man to leave the building, has reported massive explosions in the sub-basements that effected extensive destruction, including the demolition of a fifty-ton hydraulic press and the ripping of the skin off a fellow worker, where they filled with water that drained the sprinkler system.

6. Rodriguez observed that the explosion occurred prior to reverberations from upper floors, a claim that has now been substantiated in a new study by Craig Furlong and Gordon Ross, “Seismic Proof: 9/11 Was an Inside Job,” demonstrating that these explosions actually took place as much as 14 and 17 seconds before the presumptive airplane impacts.

7. Heavy-steel-construction buildings like the Twin Towers are not generally capable of “pancake collapse,” which normally occurs only with concrete structures of “lift slab” construction and could not occur in redundant welded-steel buildings, such as the towers, unless every supporting column were removed at the same time, floor by floor, as Charles Pegelow, a structural engineer, has observed.

8. The demolition of the two towers in about 10 seconds apiece is very close to the speed of free fall with only air resistance, which Judy Wood, Ph.D., formerly a professor of mechanical engineering, has observed is an astounding result that would be impossible without extremely powerful sources of energy. If they were collapsing, they would have had to fall through their points of greatest resistance.

9. Indeed, the towers are exploding from the top, not collapsing to the ground, where their floors do not move, a phenomenon Wood has likened to two gigantic trees turning to sawdust from the top down, which, like the pulverization of the buildings, the government’s account cannot possibly explain. There were no pancakes.

10. WTC-7 came down in a classic controlled demolition at 5:20 PM after Larry Silverstein suggested the best thing to do might be to “pull it,” displaying all the characteristics of classic controlled demolitions: a complete, abrupt and total collapse into its own footprint, where the floors are all falling at the same time, yielding a stack of pancakes about 5 floors high.

11. The hit point at the Pentagon was too small to accommodate a 100-ton airliner with a 125-foot wingspan and a tail that stands 44-feet above the ground; the debris was wrong for a Boeing 757: no wings, no fuselage, no seats, no bodies, no luggage, no tail! Not even the engines were recovered, which means that the official account is not true.

12. The Pentagon’s own videotapes do not show a Boeing 757 hitting the building, as even Bill O’Reilly admitted when one was shown on “The O’Reilly Factor”; at 155 feet, the plane was more than twice as long as the 77-foot Pentagon is high and should have been present and easily visible; it was not, which means that the video evidence also contradicts the official account.

13. The aerodynamics of flight would have made the official trajectory—flying at high speed barely above ground level—physically impossible, because a Boeing 757 flying over 500 mph could not have come closer than about 60 feet of the ground, which means that the official account is not even aerodynamically possible.

14. Data from a flight recorder provided to Pilots for 9/11 Truth by the National Transportation Safety Board corresponds to a plane with a different approach and altitude, which would have precluded its hitting lampposts or even the building itself, which means that, if this data corresponds to a Boeing 757, it would have flown over the Pentagon rather than hit it.

15. If Flight 93 crashed into an abandoned mine shaft, as the government maintains, then they should have brought out the heavy equipment and the bright lights and dug and dug, 24/7, in the hope that, by some miracle, someone might possibly have survived. But nothing like that was done. Even the singed trees and shrubs were trimmed, apparently to make it impossible to subject them to chemical analysis.

There is more, especially about the alleged hijackers, including that they were not competent to fly these planes and their names are not on any original, authenticated passenger manifest. Several have turned up alive and well and living in the Middle East. The government has not even produced their tickets as evidence that they were even aboard the aircraft they are alleged to have hijacked. Did Osama call from a cave in Afghanistan and charge them to his MasterCard?

President Bush recently acknowledged that Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11. The Senate Intelligence Committee has reported that Saddam was not in cahoots with Al Qaeda. And the FBI has acknowledged that it has “no hard evidence” to tie Osama to 9/11. If Saddam did not do it and Osama did not do it, then who is responsible for the death of 3,000 citizens that day?

We believe that it is the highest form of respect to those who died on 9/11 and their survivors to establish how and why they died, which our own government manifestly has not done. With the American media under the thumb of a corrupt administration, we cannot count on the press to perform its investigative function. But we can do our best to expose falsehoods and reveal truths about 9/11.

Late Friday night 14 Sept 2001- “I had to be at a meeting that wasn’t on my schedule. I didn’t even mention it to my closest staff. The topic was biological and chemical warfare, which I feared would be the next terrorist move. ”Page 357 “I scheduled our first meeting for 11PM., Specifically to keep it secret from the press lest word of it further unsettle an already rattled city. Thats also why I held it at gracie mansion. The sight of these people-some of whom were well known in the scientific community as experts on Biological attack-might trigger concern if they came to the emergency management center. Richie Scheirer, Jerry Haurer, and the Police Commisioner, The fire commisioner, health commisioner Neal Cohen and his assistant commisioner for infectious dideases, Dr. Marcello Layton, OEMs’ Edward Gabriel, and Dario Gonzalez and I spent several hours with people like Dr. Burt Meyers, an infectious disease expert at Mt Sinai Scholl of Medicine, Dr. Martin J. Blaser, the Chairman of NYUs Department of Medice, and Dr. Josh Lederberg, who had won the Nobel prize.” We recieved plans related to possible attacks involving anthrax, smallpox, botulism, and sarin gas. We established charts for each-how one would detect the first sign, how much time each individual would have to act once the symptoms appeared. How would each be delivered ? Page 358 (Leadership) Rudolph W Giuliani

“Ironically, some of our supply of the anthrax antidoteCipro had been stored in the Command Center in 7 World Trade Center. Knowing that we lost whatever had been in 7 World Trade, I aked Richie if we were now entirely without cipro and Doxyecycline and the rest. He reassured me: “WE PREPARED FOR THIS. WE HAD ALREADY SPREAD THE ANTIDOTE THROUGHOUT THE FACILITIES IN ALL FIVE BOROUGHS.”PAGE 358Leadership Rudolph W Giuliani

12 Sept 2001 Wednesday morning, JUDITH WAS THE FIRST TO SAY TO ME, ” You Know, nobody is checking in.” I asked her what she meant–then relized that we had recovered some people on Tuesday, but none after that. I got reports throughout the night, and we weren’t taking anybody out. We kept the capacity in place, hoping, praying. It was a terrible disappointment. ”

 “In a purely volunteer capacity, Judith teamed up Richie Sheirer (OEM), Rosemarie O’Keefe, and Jerome Hauer to transform 125.000 square feet on a pier in the Hudson River into a shelter for the thousands of families of victims.”Page 356 LEADERSHIP Rudolph W Giuliani

When you look at videos of the Twin Towers or WTC7 coming down, ask yourself this: "Are these buildings passively falling down or are they being blown up?"

Steel columns the size of boxcars arced thru the air and embedded themselves in buildings across the street.

Entire concrete floorpans were reduced to the dust that covered Manhatten inches thick. This dust contains unreacted thermite and iron microspheres.

The steel finger remains left standing were not the strongest parts of the buildings, they were the outer skin. The strongest parts, the cores, became three-story holes in the ground.

The largest human remain was a foot-long section of spine.

The people you ridicule, Fred, cite forensic evidence, but your best is to suggest your antagonist is mentally deficient due to an imagined motorcycle wreck. I fear for the Miami Herald's place in history.

Nick Ramsay

It's nonsense to say that "the government and military were caught utterly unprepared by the attacks". Of many examples why, official U.S. government videographer at Ground Zero, Kurt Sonnenfeld says:

"It was very odd to me when I learned that FEMA and several other federal agencies had already moved into position at their command center at Pier 92 on September 10th, one day before the attacks."

Of course, we can't expect Mr. Grimm to know these things, because that would require research.

Farid Mark Watson

Fred, I also consider the evidence that 911 was a false-flag operation to be overwhelming. To say "the plane melted" is on a par with "the dog ate my homework" (Pentagon/Shanksville). Lots to say, but simply let's have an independent investigation with subpoena power. What say you? Why not?

The Truth is Not Enough:
How to Overcome Emotional Barriers to 9/11 Truth

by Ken Jenkins
May 1, 2009

How many times has this happened to you? You are explaining to someone some of the rational, logical reasons why the official story of 9/11 can't be true, perhaps explaining how WTC 7 fell in the exact manner of a professionally planned controlled demolition -- a job which would typically take weeks to prepare -- when out comes a 'thought stopper' phrase like:

"That's just another conspiracy theory!" or ...

"Do you also believe in Big Foot and tin foil hats?"

Or perhaps the person gets angry and/or agitated. Facts no longer matter at that point, and you can tell the person does not want to hear any more. For example, the following response came from someone after they were given a 20-minute summary of 9/11 Truth information:

"I wouldn't believe that, even if it were true!"

That reaction defies all logic and reason. But it clearly illustrates just how irrational some peoples' defenses can be. Here are a few more honest responses/defenses:

"As long as my wife and kids are fine and we can live the life style we have, the truth is, I don't really care what happened on 9/11."
"I would not want to live in a world where such a thing could be true."
"You can't expect someone to listen to information that turns their world upside down."
"I'm not sure I want to know. If this is true, then up would be down and down would be up. My life would never be the same."
"Look, I have to admit that I seriously resist anyone messing with my worldview!"

Why So Much Resistance to 9/11 Truth?

Ostrich Head in Sand

Such reactions are emotionally based. 9/11 is a very emotionally charged issue. The source of the denial and resistance is FEAR. The implications of 9/11 Truth are very scary for most people to take in. Given that a part of our government's job description is keeping its citizens safe, it's terrifying to consider that a secret rogue part of our government will do just the opposite -- mass murder those very citizens, in order to advance dark agendas -- like wars for corporate empire. To further consider that associated 'secret teams' would then put out corporate media cover-up stories, in the form of an elaborate fantasy story backed up with planted evidence, and to think that story was nearly universally accepted without question -- this is the stuff of nightmares.

Then there is the difficulty of accepting the self-image shattering realization that we were duped by such cover story lies. 9/11 Truth suggests a very uncomfortable and disturbing worldview, especially to those new to such concepts. The intensity of fear brought up by these vast implications causes defense mechanisms to take over our rational thought processes. Such denial most often overrides rationality.

...

Reasons for Resistance to the Truth

There are a number of valid reasons why many of us resist the truth of 9/11. What follows are some major ones.

A. The Big Lie:

I'll start with the 'Big Lie' because it was the main barrier that kept me from fully accepting the truth of 9/11 as I was researching it in the weeks after the event. The sheer audacity of pulling off something so outrageous in broad daylight, thinking they would get away with it, and the large scale of it all kept me doubting for weeks. My turning point was learning about what really happened at Pearl Harbor -- the many warnings that were ignored, the Japanese secret codes that the US had broken, etc. This new understanding, that the attack on Pearl Harbor was clearly allowed to happen, was what finally had me fully accept 9/11 Truth. The comparable number that were deliberately mass murdered, the scale of the event, the audacity, and the 60 years of largely successful cover-up all showed me that a Big Lie had happened before, and worked to fool most of the public, and not all that long ago. It was only later I discovered these quotes:

"The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists." ~ J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI

"The masses indulge in petty falsehoods every day, but it would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths. ... The bigger the lie, therefore, the likelier it is to be believed." ~ Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf

B. Major Paradigm Shift:

Questioning the official story of 9/11 threatens the foundations of our society, or at least seems to. It challenges our fellow citizens' belief systems regarding the nature of our government, and even the very nature of our nation. Such questioning is far more profound than, say, questioning a war. Accepting the truth of 9/11 is, for many, a major paradigm shift, an inverting of their worldview. Such shifts risk a period of chaos and uncertainty, which many find scary.

C. Blind Nationalist Faith:

9/11 Truth is a confrontation with the self-image that many Americans have -- of their country and of themselves. The self-image Americans have been sold though our school systems and media is that we are the exceptional nation, the good guys wearing the white hats, the bringers of democracy and freedom. Such nationalistic faith can exceed religious faith in its dogmatic blindness.

...

D. Projecting Parental Duties on Authorities:

In his book As If We Were Grownups, author Jeff Golden's thoughtful assertion is that, "We consistently elect [political] candidates who tell us what children would want to hear. Children want to hear that everything is okay, that little is required of them, that they can go out and play or watch TV, and that they'll be taken care of and protected. In exchange, they are expected to be seen and not heard, to pay their taxes, to take their flu shots, and to not question the authorities."

E. Admission of Gullibility:

Anyone we are introducing 9/11 Truth to now has believed the official story for years. To accept 9/11 Truth they have to admit they were duped, deceived, and manipulated for all that time. That brings up questions of gullibility, naïveté, lack of perceptiveness, obliviousness, etc. Most of us have resistance to admitting such shortcomings. Astronomer Carl Sagan sums it up nicely:

"One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge -- even to ourselves -- that we've been so credulous [i.e. gullible]."

F. The Rabbit Hole Effect -- Wider Implications:

To believe 9/11 Truth, one also has to believe many other difficult truths, such as:

* Parts of our corporate media must be incredibly corrupt to be complicit in such a massive cover-up;
* There must be a powerful, secret, hidden government that is capable of planning and executing such a horrible and unthinkable act;
* Some of our leaders are more corrupt and malicious than most of us would want to believe.

But one has only to remember the words of philosopher and statesman, Edmund Burke, to understand how corruption tends to prosper especially in good times:
"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

G. Apathy and Complacency:

Radio talk show host Mike Rivero sheds some light on why so many people are apathetic and complacent about changing their beliefs:

"Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one's self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all."

H. PTSD -- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder:

9/11 was first and foremost a psyop, shorthand for a Psychological Operation. It is a term used by secret services like the CIA to describe a class of operations that are intended to manipulate the emotions of populations; it is a form of mind control.
The specific intention of 9/11 was to terrorize the American people into supporting the so-called "war on terror," which is a replacement for the cold war's "war on communism." It's a blank check for the US government and the American military-industrial-complex to attack anyone, anywhere they want, anytime they want -- to support the empire.

The psyop initially worked for a vast majority of US citizens, and for many, it is still working.

The terror that so many felt during and after the attacks left many people, particularly in New York City, with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder -- PTSD. To revisit those events, as is necessary to expose the truth of 9/11, can retrigger that stress and add to the other discomforts that are already intrinsic to that same truth we are revealing. The desire to minimize re-experiencing that trauma causes people to back away. We need to go easy on those who exhibit such stress.

I. Lack of Knowledge of Historical Parallels or Patterns:

While not strictly an emotional issue, the ignorance most people have about the many false flag events used to justify wars throughout history also has a psychological component. Our ability to conceptualize new information is dependent on having a frame of reference, that is, already knowing something similar, in order to be able to anchor a new thought. The lack of such historical reference points, therefore, can be yet another source of resistance. This blockage is perhaps the easiest one to deal with -- by educating people about the long history of false flag events used for triggering wars.

...

The good news is that with all that is happening now in our post-9/11 world, particularly with the public knowledge of the lies about WMDs and Saddam being linked to al Qaeda and 9/11 that led us into war with Iraq, people's minds are opening wider every day. More and more people are waking up to the degree of corruption and deception that is routine in our government. Every day they learn more about how the corporate media have been complicit in lies and cover-ups. Trust in such corporate and governmental institutions is now at an all time low, and dropping...

La verdad no es suficiente:
Cómo superar las barreras emocionales a 9 / 11 Truth

por Ken Jenkins
1 de mayo 2009

¿Cuántas veces ha pasado esto a usted? Usted está explicando a alguien que algunos de los racionales, razones lógicas por la historia oficial del 9 / 11 no puede ser cierto, tal vez explicando cómo WTC 7 cayeron en la forma exacta de una demolición controlada profesionalmente previsto - un trabajo que normalmente tomaría semanas para preparar - cuando viene a la frase un «tapón pensamiento" como:

"Eso es sólo otra teoría de la conspiración!" o ...

"¿Usted también cree en Big Foot y sombreros de papel de aluminio?"

O tal vez la persona se enfada y / o de agitación. Los hechos ya no importan en ese momento, y usted puede decir que la persona no quiere escuchar más. Por ejemplo, la siguiente respuesta vino de alguien después de que se les dio un resumen de 20 minutos de 9 / 11 Truth información:

"Yo no creo que, incluso si fuera cierto!"
Esa reacción desafía toda lógica y razón. Sin embargo, ilustra claramente cómo las defensas irracionales de algunas personas puede ser. Aquí están algunas respuestas más honestas / defensas:

"Mientras mi esposa y mis hijos están muy bien y podemos vivir el estilo de vida que tenemos, la verdad es que no me importa lo que pasó el 9 / 11".
"No me gustaría vivir en un mundo en el que tal cosa puede ser verdad."
"No se puede esperar que alguien escuche la información que se vuelve a su mundo al revés".
"No estoy seguro de que quiero saber. Si esto es cierto, entonces sería hasta abajo y abajo se acabaría. Mi vida nunca será la misma".
"Mira, tengo que admitir que en serio alguien resistirse a jugar con mi visión del mundo!"


¿Por qué tan mucha resistencia a 9 / 11 Truth?

Cabeza de avestruz en la arena

Estas reacciones son basadas en emociones. 9 / 11 es una cuestión de gran carga emocional. El origen de la negación y la resistencia es el miedo. Las implicaciones de 9 / 11 Truth son muy atemorizante para la mayoría de la gente a tomar in Teniendo en cuenta que una parte de la descripción de las funciones de nuestro gobierno es mantener seguridad de sus ciudadanos, es aterrador para considerar que una parte Rogue secreto de nuestro gobierno hará todo lo contrario -- - el asesinato en masa los mismos ciudadanos, a fin de avanzar en las agendas oscuras - como las guerras del imperio corporativo. A fin de considerar que asocia los "equipos de secreto 'y luego pondría a cabo los medios corporativos encubrimiento historias, en la forma de una historia de fantasía elaborar una copia de seguridad con siembra de evidencias, y pensar que la historia era casi universalmente aceptada, sin duda, - esta es la pesadillas.


Luego está la dificultad de aceptar la imagen de sí mismo rompiendo constatación de que fueron engañados por la historia de dicha cobertura se encuentra. 9 / 11 Truth sugiere una visión del mundo muy incómodo y molesto, especialmente a los nuevos conceptos tales. La intensidad del temor planteado por estas vastas implicaciones causas mecanismos de defensa para hacerse cargo de nuestros procesos de pensamiento racional. Esta negativa a aceptar más a menudo prevalece la racionalidad.

...


Razones de la resistencia a la Verdad

Hay una serie de razones válidas por las que muchos de nosotros resistir la verdad de 9 / 11. Lo que sigue son algunos de los principales.

A. La Gran Impostura:

Voy a comenzar con la "Gran Mentira", porque era la principal barrera que me impedía aceptar plenamente la verdad de 9 / 11 como estaba investigando en las semanas posteriores al evento. La audacia de quitándose algo tan escandaloso en plena luz del día, pensando que podría salirse con la suya, y la gran escala de todo esto me mantuvo dudar durante semanas. Mi punto de inflexión fue aprender acerca de lo que realmente sucedió en Pearl Harbor - de las muchas advertencias que fueron ignoradas, los códigos secretos japoneses que los EE.UU. habían roto, etc Esta nueva comprensión, de que el ataque a Pearl Harbor fue claramente permite que esto ocurra, se lo que finalmente me hizo aceptar completamente el 9 / 11 Truth. El número comparable que fueron deliberadamente asesinados en masa, la magnitud del evento, la audacia y los 60 años de cubrir en gran medida el éxito de todas me mostró que una gran mentira que había ocurrido antes, y trabajó para engañar a la mayoría del público, y no todo lo que hace mucho tiempo. Sólo más tarde descubrí estas citas:

"El individuo tiene la desventaja de cara a cara con una conspiración tan monstruosa que no puede creer que existe." ~ J. Edgar Hoover, director del FBI

"Las masas caer en falsedades pequeña cada día, pero nunca entraría en sus cabezas fabricar falsedades colosales. ... Cuanto más grande la mentira, por lo tanto, es más probable es que se cree". ~ Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf


B. Principales Cambio de paradigma:

El cuestionamiento de la historia oficial del 9 / 11 pone en peligro los cimientos de nuestra sociedad, o al menos parece. Desafía a los sistemas de nuestros conciudadanos de creencias sobre la naturaleza de nuestro gobierno, e incluso la naturaleza misma de nuestra nación. Tal cuestionamiento es mucho más profunda que, por ejemplo, el interrogatorio de una guerra. Aceptar la verdad de 9 / 11 es, para muchos, un cambio importante de paradigma, un inversor de su visión del mundo. Estos cambios riesgo de un período de caos y la incertidumbre, que muchos encuentran miedo.

C. Blind Faith Nacionalista:

9 / 11 Truth es una confrontación con la propia imagen que muchos estadounidenses han - de su país y de sí mismos. La auto-imagen de los estadounidenses se han vendido bien nuestros sistemas escolares y medios de comunicación es que somos la nación excepcional, los buenos usando el sombrero blanco, los portadores de la democracia y la libertad. Esta fe nacionalista puede superar la fe religiosa en su ceguera dogmática.


D. Deberes de los padres sobre la proyección de las autoridades:

En su libro como si fuéramos adultos, el autor afirma pensativo Jeff Golden es que, "Nosotros siempre elegirá [político] que nos dicen los candidatos lo que los niños que quieren oír. Los niños quieren saber que todo está bien, que poco se requiere de ellos , que pueden salir a jugar o ver la televisión, y que van a ser cuidados y protegidos. A cambio, se espera que sean vistos y no oídos, para pagar sus impuestos, para tener sus vacunas contra la gripe, y no cuestionar a las autoridades ".

E. Admisión de credulidad:

Cualquier persona que estamos introduciendo 9 / 11 Truth ahora ha creído la versión oficial durante años. Para aceptar 9 / 11 Truth tienen que admitir que fueron engañados, engañados y manipulados durante todo ese tiempo. Esto lleva a mencionar las cuestiones de la credulidad, ingenuidad, la falta de percepción, olvido, etc mayoría de nosotros tenemos la resistencia a admitir este tipo de deficiencias. El astrónomo Carl Sagan lo resume perfectamente:

"Una de las más tristes lecciones de la historia es esta: si hemos sido embaucados el tiempo suficiente, que tienden a rechazar cualquier prueba de la embaucar. Ya no estamos interesados en saber la verdad. El embaucar ha capturado nosotros. Es simplemente demasiado doloroso para dar fe - incluso para nosotros mismos - que hemos sido tan crédulos [es decir, crédulos]. "

F. Los efectos Rabbit Hole - Gran Consecuencias:

Creer 9 / 11 Truth, uno también tiene que creer muchas otras verdades difíciles, tales como:

* Las partes de nuestros medios de comunicación de las empresas debe ser increíblemente corrupto que haya sido cómplice en la cobertura tan masiva-up;
* No debe ser un poderoso secreto, el gobierno oculta que es capaz de planificar y ejecutar un acto tan horrible e impensable;
* Algunos de nuestros líderes son más corruptos y maliciosos que la mayoría de nosotros queremos creer.

Pero uno sólo tiene que recordar las palabras del filósofo y estadista, Edmund Burke, para entender cómo la corrupción tiende a prosperar en especial en los buenos tiempos:
"Lo único necesario para el triunfo del mal es que los hombres buenos no hagan nada."

G. La apatía y la complacencia:

Programa de radio de acogida Mike Rivero arroja alguna luz sobre por qué tantas personas son apáticos y complacientes acerca de cambiar sus creencias:

"La mayoría de las personas prefieren creer que sus líderes son justas y equitativas, incluso en presencia de pruebas en contrario, porque una vez que un ciudadano reconoce que el gobierno bajo el que viven es la mentira y la corrupción, el ciudadano tiene que elegir qué es lo que hará sobre él. Para actuar en el rostro de un gobierno corrupto, conlleva riesgos de daños a la vida y los seres queridos. Para elegir no hacer nada es a la entrega de uno mismo-imagen de prestigio de los principios. La mayoría de la gente no tiene el coraje para enfrentar ese elección. Por lo tanto, la mayoría de la propaganda no está diseñado para engañar al pensador crítico, pero sólo los cobardes morales para dar una excusa para no pensar en nada. "

H. PTSD - trastorno de estrés postraumático:

9 / 11 fue ante todo una operación psicológica, la abreviatura de una operación psicológica. Es un término usado por los servicios secretos como la CIA para describir una clase de operaciones que están destinadas a manipular las emociones de la población, es una forma de control mental.
La intención específica de 9 / 11 fue para aterrorizar al pueblo de Estados Unidos en el apoyo a la llamada "guerra contra el terror", que es un sustituto para la guerra de la guerra fría "en el comunismo". Es un cheque en blanco para el gobierno de EE.UU. y los militares estadounidenses-industrial-para atacar a nadie, en cualquier lugar que deseen, cuando quieran - para apoyar el imperio.

Las PSYOP inicialmente trabajaba para una gran mayoría de los ciudadanos de EE.UU., y para muchos, se sigue trabajando.

El terror que muchos sintieron durante y después de los ataques dejó a muchas personas, especialmente en Nueva York, con Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - PTSD. Para volver a esos acontecimientos, como es necesario para exponer la verdad de 9 / 11, se disparará que el estrés y añadir las incomodidades de otros que ya son intrínsecas a la misma verdad que son reveladoras. El deseo de reducir al mínimo re-experimentar el trauma que hace que la gente a retroceder. Tenemos que ir fácil en los que el estrés que exhiben tales.

I. Falta de conocimiento de los paralelismos históricos o Patrones:

Aunque no es estrictamente una cuestión emocional, la ignorancia de la mayoría de la gente tiene sobre los muchos eventos de bandera falsa utilizada para justificar las guerras de la historia también tiene un componente psicológico. Nuestra capacidad de conceptualizar la nueva información depende de que exista un marco de referencia, es decir, ya sabía algo similar, con el fin de poder anclar un nuevo pensamiento. La falta de tales puntos de referencia históricos, por lo tanto, pueden ser otra fuente de resistencia. Este bloqueo es tal vez la más fácil de tratar - por educar a la gente acerca de la larga historia de los acontecimientos de bandera falsa utilizados para activar las guerras.

...

La buena noticia es que con todo lo que está sucediendo ahora en el mundo de nuestros post-9/11, en particular con el conocimiento público de las mentiras sobre armas de destrucción masiva de Saddam y estar vinculado a Al Qaeda y 9 / 11 que nos llevó a la guerra con Irak, la gente las mentes están cada día más. Más y más gente está empezando a darse el grado de corrupción y el engaño que es habitual en nuestro gobierno. Cada día aprendemos más sobre cómo los medios corporativos han sido cómplices de las mentiras y encubrimientos. La confianza en esas instituciones empresariales y gubernamentales se encuentra ahora en su punto más bajo, y bajando ...

LET THE TRUTH BE KNOWN

It's good to see that Fred Grimm is wearing his motorcycle helmet - backwards, but at least he's wearing it.

Why does Grimm FEAR an independent commission to freely investigate the 9/11 disaster? No government or agency of the government should be concerned about having their work (The 9/11 Commission Report) challenged IF it is thorough, accurate and valid on all points. Once done it will put the issue to rest, or not - it will find the flaws.

Joe McCrory

Let's get real about Farmer here and his actual intentions in writing The Untold Story. The bottom line is that he is selling bureaucratic inefficiences but, more importantly, he's selling it as THE definitive explanation.

In order to intentionally defuse the questions being pondered by growing numbers of people about the OCT, he offers a small token of a / some "truth" - Bush admin. screwed up, should be embarrassed, ashamed, blah, blah, blah. It's a blatant attempt that he (they) are trying to make to pacify the questioners and divert their attention away from THE truth.

To a large degree, unfortunately, I think it worked, although hopefully only temporarily. It's the perfect foil because so many people believe that Bush, as a representative and representation of his administration, was a bumbling nincompoop, a blithering idiot. They may not like it, but they can understand it and relate to it. I mean, who wouldn't want to cover up / bend the truth a bit about their own massive failings?

It makes some amount of sense to people as in, "Oh, so THAT'S what they've been trying to cover up. That's bad, but we already knew it, so it's not really that big a deal."

Using this knowledge, Farmer (they) have attempted to close the door on the entire issue in one slick, fell swoop by relegating all other explanations to the 911 trash heap.

He writes as much himself in the very first part of the book (The Untold Story - page 5, Introduction) and it's hugely significant. The last sentence in this quote is the key to the whole book - why it was written and what the entire motivation for it was.

It's subtle, but one doesn't really have to read between the lines to understand what his (their) point was - IF you're reading it from the perspective of already knowing what the actual truth is (i.e., that the official government story doesn't fit the masive amount of growing evidence, and that this evidence means there was the exact opposite of bumbling.)

Here's what he writes:

"In the grand scheme of things, then, the government's deception about how we were defended on 9/11 may seem minor. This book in no way seeks to overstate it's significance. In it's own way, however, the government's failure to tell the truth about what happened on 9/11 has had far-reaching effects.

Because the government's story didn't make sense, it raised as many questions as it answered, thus fueling conspiracy theories that persist regarding 9/11. One purpose of The Ground Truth is to lay at least some of these theories to rest by identifying and establishing the deception that did occur."

Reread that last sentence and then do your own research of the evidence online. You don't have to believe me, John Farmer, or anyone else.
If the evidence doesn't fit a story of simple but massive incompetence, then that's not the truth. And it isn't.

rc

Mr. Grim, as co moderator of Bruce and rc's Biker forum I find your assertions regarding Mr. Arnolds stance on motorcycle helmets so far off base it is obvious that you have not familiarized yourself with his long standing consistent message relating to motorcycle helmets.

To not do so and then attribute a stance on a position that isn't his as his, is either unforgivable ignorance due to negligence as a journalist, or just a flat out lie to intentionally mislead your readers.

The truth is that Florida still has a "helmet law". It was modified after two Florida courts found the law to be unconstitutionally vague.

It would seem that one in a position such as yours would feel some sort of responsibility for finding and presenting the "truth" as opposed to perverting it.

If you can get the Florida Motorcycle Helmet law issue so twisted, how can anyone assign credibility to anything else that is regurgitated from your keyboard.

WTC 7 proves the lie. Study it and you will know it.

charles

you obviously don't need to wear a helmet as you have a thick head. first off bruce wasn't talking about helmets but of course your narrow mind has to add it to the picture. second since you wish to bring up the helmet issue, if you check your history it was never leagely put in force. some slime in office with to much power sliped it in illegaly. third what happened to our freedom to make our own choises how to live as long as it doesn't harm anyone else. this is the land of the free or not. and lastly if you tack a moment to look at the facts instead of critisizing others you would realise how stupid your comments are and how true the facts are. your a perfect example of why this country is going down the toilet

lilRedrideingHood

if your going to Quote a Wingnut, at least quote him correctly. and the helmet remark was out of line, you are supposed to be a professional!
poor writing, and a poor article!

Daniel Bland

I was raised on Dr. Dobson, and have just sent him a letter requesting his assistance to help me stop loosing faith in the Christian Church. My Mom respects Dr. Dobson as much or more than any other Christian leader, and she is interested to see his response. I only started learning the truth about the 9/11 attacks last fall. It took me an entire year to convince my own parents to listen to me, and begin reviewing the evidence for themselves. Now that they have thoroughly and objectively taken a fresh look into all the available evidence, they too are now aware of how badly we have been deceived. They now fully support my mission to find out what really happened to 2,993 of our fellow countrymen that fateful September morning. My mom is very interested to see if/how Dr. Dobson will respond. Please read my open letter to Dr. Dobson and share your thoughts at.........

Does Christ's Church really stand for TRUTH & JUSTICE? That is the question!
