Sept. 11, 2001 and the participants

September 10, 2015

I was going to post this tomorrow. But I’d rather get an early start making folks mad.

I’ve been thinking about this post for quite a while now. I post something about 9/11/2001 every year. Usually, I lose some readers, get bumped from being a contributor to other blogs, get railed on, called names and all the stuff that liberals are known to do. Thing is, they are conservatives berating me like a step-child.  I’ve been blogging for a pretty long time now … longer than some, not as long as others, and the tragic events of 9/11/2001 are just as vivid to me now as the day it happened.  Stevex09 was the name of my former blog. Actually, it was much more popular than humble Cry and Howl. The good folks, Sharon Rondeau and company, over at The Post and Email selected an article I wrote at Stevex09 for blog of the day. (here) That was a long time ago, at least it seems like it.

Okay, enough reminiscing.  Well, let’s get this out from the beginning … I’m what’s known as a “Truther.”  How the term came into use is a mystery to me. I do know it’s considered to be a derogatory slur, indicating a lack of intellectual prowess, and a “conspiracy theorist.” What I find rather curious is that it’s conservatives who blow a gasket and come apart at the seams at the suggestion that those within our government had something to do with 9/11/2001. I call to mind something Patrick Henry said, “We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth.”  The citizens of America have a genuine need to feel safe and secure. We want to think of those in the government as having everything in control. It only makes sense that people with a nefarious agenda would exploit that feeling of security. The very idea that there could be some in the government who are willing to sacrifice a couple thousand innocent people to implement an agenda is anathema to the ordinary citizen. Reasoning with the same logic we use in scrutinizing  the things team Obama has done is never allowed with 9/11/2001. Let me see if I can put this into perspective. Obama’s phony presidency has been plagued with scandal after scandal, almost too many to count. You can pick any one you like and know of a certainty Obama and company have done nothing but lie. In each and every scandal the story changes. The conflicting accounts are enough by themselves to know someone is hiding something. “The hard drive crashed and all emails were lost.”  “Oh, we found the emails!”  “A Youtube video is to blame for the Benghazi massacre.” “I learned about Fast and Furious a couple of weeks ago.” “I didn’t send or receive any classified material from my email account.”  “I never had sex with that woman.” “Well, yeah I did have sex with her.”

The evidence of lies and cover-up is in the ever-changing accounts. Ask any cop who’s investigating a crime. Noting discrepancies is a basic investigative skill and used to get to the truth.

We’re able to immediately recognize the lies put forth by Barack Obama and his team (we may not know the precise truth, but we do know what we’re being told isn’t it) in each and every scandal.  As much as it pains me, I think it’s only fair to apply the same reasoning with what happened on September 11, 2001. Oh, I know it’s been such a long time since that happened. Why can’t we just forget about it? If I remember correctly “Never Forget” became etched into the minds of the American people, all rallying to execute vengeance on those responsible.  But, many of us have forgotten. We’ve gone from blaming Muslim men and realizing Muslims are capable of plotting more attacks, to welcoming them into America and even teaching the virtues of Islam in our schools. We’ll recognize Muslim holy days and we’ve gone from a “church on every corner” in America, to a mosque in every corner. There’s no doubt that Muslims in general (no, not all) hate America, but those 19 hijackers were simply used as pawns.

I remember my very first thought when I watched the first building collapse … “Someone set off charges in the building!”  When the reports and various accounts began to come out I knew we were being lied to.



There are far too many contradictory accounts of 9/11/2001 to get into and point them out. But one doesn’t need them all to know team Bush lied, obstructed, underfunded the investigation and in this Texan’s view were at the very least complicit in the attacks.

Here’s a quote by Mr. G.W. Bush shortly after the tragic events of 9/11/2001 …

“Nobody in our government, at least, and I don’t think the prior government, could envision flying airplanes into buildings on such a massive scale.”

Well, Mr. Bush, using a keen ear, I detect a discrepancy in that statement. You’re telling us that in the Bush government and the eight years of the Clinton government no one envisioned flying airplanes into buildings. That doesn’t jive with this:

On the very morning of 9/11/01, five war games and terror drills were being conducted by several U.S. defense agencies, including one “live fly” exercise using REAL planes. Then-Acting Head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Air Force General Richard B. Myers, admitted to 4 of the war games in congressional testimony — see transcript here or video here (6 minutes and 12 seconds into the video).
Norad had run drills for several years of planes being used as weapons against the World Trade Center and other U.S. high-profile buildings, and “numerous types of civilian and military aircraft were used as mock hijacked aircraft”. In other words, drills using REAL AIRCRAFT simulating terrorist attacks crashing jets into buildings, including the twin towers, were run. See also official military website showing 2000 military drill, using miniatures, involving a plane crashing into the Pentagon.
Indeed, a former Los Angeles police department investigator, whose newsletter is read by 45 members of congress, both the house and senate intelligence committees, and professors at more than 40 universities around the world, claims that he obtained an on-the-record confirmation from NORAD that ON 9/11, NORAD and the Joint Chiefs of Staff were conducting a joint, live-fly, hijack exercise which involved government-operated aircraft POSING AS HIJACKED AIRLINERS.

And I find the following rather suspect:

Interestingly, Vice President Cheney was apparently in charge of ALL of the war games and coordinated the government’s “response” to the attacks. See this Department of State announcement; this CNN article; and this previously-cited essay.
And while the government has consistently stated that it did not know where the aircraft were before they struck, this short video clip of the Secretary of Transportation’s testimony before the 9/11 Commission shows that Cheney monitored flight 77 for many miles as it approached the Pentagon. How could one of the most heavily-defended buildings in the world have been successfully attacked, when the Vice President of the United States, in charge of counter-terrorism on 9/11, watched it approach from many miles away?

For the attacks on 9/11/2001 to be successful there needed to be simulated attacks to create enough confusion as to what was real and what wasn’t. HERE is some interesting stuff.

And here is some interesting stuff …

Condoleezza Rice  5/16/02 … “I don’t think anybody could have predicted that they would try to use an airplane as a missile, a hijacked airplane as a missile.”

But the truth of the matter is …

On August 6, 2001, the President (Bush) personally “received a one and a half page briefing advising him that Osama Bin Laden was capable of a major strike against the U.S. and that the plot could include the hijacking of an American airplane.” In July 2001, the administration was also told that terrorists had explored using airplanes as missiles. (NBC, 9/10/02; LA Times, 9/27/01

“Had I known that the enemy was going to use airplanes to strike America, to attack us, I would have used every resource, every asset, every power of the government, to protect the American people,” Bush said at a New Hampshire campaign stop, appearing with Cheryl McGinnis, the wife of a pilot killed in the attacks. (HERE)

With all due respect Mr. Bush, you’re a liar.


Folks, unless the people over at the BBC are wizards and can see into the future, why would they report that World Trade Center Building 7 collapsed … about 30 minutes before it did?

We all know the story … planes hit the buildings. Fires started, weakened the support beams and bingo, the buildings collapsed under the weight. Let’s see, two planes = three steel framed buildings collapsing. Man, I think the builders of tall buildings should update their building codes. But, they haven’t. We got some new buildings, same codes. Hey, not to worry. Just don’t start a fire in your trash can.

There seems to be an inordinate number of coincidences regarding the events of that day. Take for example the fact that fire has never (before 9/11/2001) caused a steel-framed high-rise building to collapse. Yet we’re to believe that fire collapsed three in one day.  Oh, I know that there are those who claim the damage from the airplanes combined with the fire brought the buildings down. But that’s nonsense:

The towers were designed to withstand the impact of airliners about the same size as Boeing 767s.[5] Hyman Brown, the construction manager of the Twin Towers, said: “They were over-designed to withstand almost anything, including hurricanes, . . . bombings and an airplane hitting [them]” (Bollyn, 2001). And even Thomas Eagar, an MIT professor of materials engineering who supports the official theory, says that the impact of the airplanes would not have been significant, because “the number of columns lost on the initial impact was not large and the loads were shifted to remaining columns in this highly redundant structure” (Eagar and Musso, 2001, pp. 8-11).

Two planes … three buildings.  Building #7 wasn’t mentioned in the Commission’s report. 571 pages and not one sentence about the collapse of Building #7.

David Ray Griffin explains:

The extreme difficulty of explaining the collapse of building 7—-assuming that it is not permissible to mention controlled demolition—has been recognized by the official bodies. The report prepared under FEMA’s supervision came up with a scenario employing the diesel fuel, then admitted that this scenario had “only a low probability of occurrence.”[67] Even that statement is generous, because the probability that some version of the official story of building 7 is true is the same as it is for the towers, essentially zero, because it would violate several laws of physics. In any case, the 9/11 Commission, perhaps because of this admission by FEMA, avoided the problem by simply not even mentioning the fact that this building collapsed.


Another coincidence most folks don’t know is …

The suggestion that explosives might have been used raises the question of how anyone wanting to place explosives in the towers could have gotten through the security checks. This question brings us to a possibly relevant fact about a company—now called Stratesec but then called Securacom—that was in charge of security for the World Trade Center. From 1993 to 2000, during which Securacom installed a new security system, Marvin Bush, the president’s brother, was one of the company’s directors. And from 1999 until January of 2002, their cousin Wirt Walker III was the CEO (Burns, 2003).

(emphasis, steve’s)

Those “Bushes” really get around don’t they?

One side note. There is a stark resemblance to how the governments of G.W. Bush operated and how Barack Hussein Obama’s government operates. Nearly 3,000 innocent people died on 9/11/2001. There were multiple security failures (if we believe any of the official report). Multiple incompetent acts and inactions and not one person was fired or punished. Obama’s terms in office has been rife with scandal after scandal. Many in which innocent Americans have died (think Navy SEAL Team Six. Ambassador Stevens. Brian Terry, on and on) and no one has been fired or punished.


I’m sick of the phony sad looks pasted on the faces of Bush, Obama, Clinton and the rest of the traitors occupying the office of the presidency and walking the halls of Congress. I’m sick of their phony attendances at the memorial services of those innocent people who were literally sacrificed so these insidious weasels can continue to build a world for us to live in. But one in which they won’t … one they want to rule.

And finally we have probably the most disgusting part (as if the complicity and participation of team Bush and the cover up by the media isn’t bad enough); the insider trading of those who knew of the 9/11 attacks in advance and profited …

Between September 6 and 7, the CBOE saw purchases of 4,744 put options on United Airlines, but only 396 call options. Assuming that 4,000 of the options were bought by people with advance knowledge of the imminent attacks, these “insiders” would have profited by almost $5 million.
  • On September 10, 4,516 put options on American Airlines were bought on the Chicago exchange, compared to only 748 calls. Again, there was no news at that point to justify this imbalance; again, assuming that 4,000 of these options trades represent “insiders”, they would represent a gain of about $4 million.
  • [The levels of put options purchased above were more than six times higher than normal.]
  • No similar trading in other airlines occurred on the Chicago exchange in the days immediately preceding Black Tuesday.
  • Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co, which occupied 22 floors of the World Trade Center, saw 2,157 of its October $45 put options bought in the three trading days before Black Tuesday; this compares to an average of 27 contracts per day before September 6. Morgan Stanley’s share price fell from $48.90 to $42.50 in the aftermath of the attacks. Assuming that 2,000 of these options contracts were bought based upon knowledge of the approaching attacks, their purchasers could have profited by at least $1.2 million.
  • Merrill Lynch & Co, with headquarters near the Twin Towers, saw 12,215 October $45 put options bought in the four trading days before the attacks; the previous average volume in those shares had been 252 contracts per day (a 1200% increase). When trading resumed, Merrill’s shares fell from $46.88 to $41.50; assuming that 11,000 option contracts were bought by “insiders”, their profit would have been about $5.5 million.
  • European regulators are examining trades in Germany’s Munich Re, Switzerland’s Swiss Re, and AXA of France, all major reinsurers with exposure to the Black Tuesday disaster. (Note: AXA also owns more than 25% of American Airlines stock, making the attacks a “double whammy” for them.)

    Nothing new. I was a kid during the height of the Vietnam War. I didn’t believe anything the the government told me then. I have had no reason to change that opinion ever since.

    My day has been a morning from hell – ok – that only to say I’m swamped and have only had time to read half of this.
    But that was enough to know I am going to reblog it.
    Initially I thought I would hold it till tomorrow. Now I know – it would be better to do so today HOPING it gets a lot of attention it deserves.
    Meantime – without getting at the second half yet – Steve – the media – the programming done to us by government and media – really – how simple it has been …. and how frickin scary!

      Lady Raven, like Dennis said, a lot of this stuff has been around ever since 9/12/2001. But I can’t shake the “Never Forget” thing. I can’t get past watching the buildings coming down and my first thought. I’ve been viciously attacked by conservatives for my take on the issue. What chaps my ass the most is conservatives suspect Obama and company for everything . But Bush was/is just as much a liar as Obama. Fact is Bush set up a lot of crap for Obama.

    I agree with every word you have posted here but I doubt we will ever see anything done about what happened on that fateful day.

    Now I have to apologize for going off topic but the news just came on the radio that somebody is pushing congress to take in 10,000 of those Syrian refugees.

    The nightmare is beginning!

    First 10,000 and then 100,000 and then a million — Now I think I know why they are pushing to get low income housing built adjacent to prosperous neighborhoods.

    I think we are going to see some of our already low-paid jobs become even more so here in The Land of The Free.

    I do not see this as a humanitarian crisis. I see it more as Hijrah.

    I could be wrong. I hope I am wrong.

      John, you are spot on and I will add that the nightmare started quite some time ago and now will keep repeating itself as nightmares do.

      You are not wrong, good sir.

      It is a muslim invasion and think 1683 and what happened in Vienna.

    Steve, I will reblog this, every word and as I have long been vilified and hated by so called conservatives, liberals, progressives, socialists, I could care less about getting more hate filled vibes, looks, comments etc. tossed me way.

    How can anyone ever for get 9/11/2001 in any way shape or form. Having been in the trenches since 1979 against Islam and muzzscums, fast forward to where the FUSA is now. The entire country, along with what is left of the ‘free’ West is under attack from various forms of jihad. At the end of the day, jihad IS jihad.

    Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller were once totally in the fight against against Islam, sharia law and all the evil that is Islam. Sadly, they are now about the money and have fallen into the ‘moderate’ muslims group think.

    Two of the finest counterjihadists are the most excellent people, Baron and Dymphna who own and run Gates of Vienna. What happens in Euorpitsan will happen here as we have been lied to and the drawbridge was ‘accidentally’ lowered and now the enemy is inside the castle keep.

    Thank you for posting and most honored to re-post.

      Thank you PatriotUSA and hocus-pocus, the unit, and John. I wasn’t anyone when I said that conservatives are the most adamant in accepting the government’s account of 9/11/2001. I had one who had been a blogging friend for years tell me, “This is where we go different roads,” because of my take on this thing. Another at a very popular conservative site of which I was a contributor and a lot of my stuff was headlined at Bad Blue bumped me because he disagreed with me. I mean, geez. Ray Charles can see we’ve been screwed and I have to tell you all, I loathe the Bush family. They are serious globalists. G.W. Bush sacrifice those people and there’s no escaping that fact. I don’t want folks to agree with me because I’m cool (heh, heh) but read what I wrote, search the links and draw your own conclusions.

    Thanks for including me in the unwashed. I’ve mentioned before in NW Florida when the democrat Earl Hutto retired, even the repuk who ran for his seat said… “we are all world citizens now.” Maybe you like Morning Joe, he beat her in the ’90’s and I was for the young man then. Still I think Morning Joe is just for Morning Joe. Just my IMHO. We ain’t got much. Again IMHO.
