A Rothschild Defends U.S. Government's Own 9/11 Conspiracy Theories!
The very fact that a Rothschild wrote an article supporting the U.S. government's own official-fiction of 9/11, shows how DESPERATE the Global Elite have become, as their new world order continues to crumble.
The story by Mr. Matthew Rothschild below appears in blue type. My comments (and proof of my statements) appear in pink type. My comments appear right in the body of the article, directly underneath the statements that Mr. Rothschild makes. This way, I can show the fallacies of Mr. Rothschild's thesis, and it should be self-evident that if ANYONE here is proferring a conspiracy theory, it is Mr. Rothschild himself, because the official-fiction of that day defies both common sense AND the laws of physics.
Furthermore, the researchers of the 9/11 Truth Movement are among the most intelligent and well-spoken of any activist movement in which I have ever participated. This is likely the reason WHY our TRUTH is being attacked by one of the Rothschild family -- Global Elite Kingpins. This clearly shows that they are losing their grip on global society, and their plans for their much-coveted new world order is now falling apart around them.
ENOUGH OF THE 9/11 CONSPIRACIES, ALREADY!
by Matthew Rothschild
September 12, 2006
At almost every progressive gathering where there’s a question and answer period, someone or other vehemently raises 9/11 and espouses a grand conspiracy theory.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of enduring these rants, please let me share.
Here’s what the conspiracists believe:
9/11 was an inside job.
Members of the Bush Administration ordered it, not Osama bin Laden.
The prevailing consensus at this point is that the Israeli intelligence group MOSSAD appears to have been behind 9/11. After all, there was some mighty damaging behavior on the part of Israeli agents on 9/11. First, we have the Israeli front company Odigo warning its' employees NOT to come to work that day. We also have what has become known as the 'Dancing Israeli Art Students,' who were filming the event from atop a high-rise near the WTC, and who were seen 'celebrating.' Then, we have Ariel Sharon, who has said the following about America, a statement that I found repugnant:
“I don’t care what the American people think, I own the [U.S.] Congress!”
--- Ariel Sharon; Israel Prime Minister
Arab hijackers may not have done the deed.
There were no Arabs listed on any of the flight lists, and seven of the nineteen so-called hijackers were found to be ALIVE after 9/11. This alone raises serious questions about the official-fiction as presented by the Bush regime. Furthermore, Bush Crime Family patriarch George Bush Sr. refuses or is unable to say where he was on that day.
This is similar to George Bush Sr's not being able to explain where he was on November 22, 1963, when an Associated Press photographer named James Altgens took a photo of Bush Sr. standing outside of the Schoolbook Depository at the time of the assassination of JFK. Furthermore, Bush Sr. was debriefed by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover the day after the assassination.
It seems that whenever seriously EVIL DEEDS are going down, Bush Sr. is constantly unable to say where he was at the moment of these events.
On top of that, the Twin Towers fell not because of the impact of the airplanes and the ensuing fires but because the Bush Administration got agents to plant explosives at the base of those buildings.
William Rodriguez, the WTC janitor who was the last person to come out of the towers alive, unequivocally stated that he heard explosions in the sub-basement level of the tower he was in -- WTC 1 -- also known as the North Tower:
"When I heard the sound of the explosion, the floor beneath my feet vibrated, the walls started cracking and it everything started shaking," said Rodriguez, who was huddled together with at least 14 other people in the office.
Rodriguez said Anthony Saltamachia, supervisor for the American Maintenance Co., was one of the people in the room who stands ready to verify his story.
"Seconds after the first massive explosion below in the basement still rattled the floor, I hear another explosion from way above," said Rodriguez. "Although I was unaware at the time, this was the airplane hitting the tower, it occurred moments after the first explosion."
But before Rodriguez had time to think, co-worker Felipe David stormed into the basement office with severe burns on his face and arms, screaming for help and yelling "Explosion! Explosion! Explosion!"
David had been in front of a nearby freight elevator on sub-level 1 about 400 feet from the office when fire burst out of the elevator shaft, causing his injuries.
"He was burned terribly," said Rodriguez. "The skin was hanging off his hands and arms. His injuries couldn’t have come from the airplane above, but only from a massive explosion below. I don’t care what the government says, what scientists say. I saw a man burned terribly from a fire that was caused from an explosion below.
"I know there were explosives placed below the trade center. I helped a man to safety who is living proof, living proof the government story is a lie and a cover-up.
"I have tried to tell my story to everybody, but nobody wants to listen. It is very strange what is going on here in supposedly the most democratic country in the world. In my home country of Puerto Rico and all the other Latin American countries, I have been allowed to tell my story uncensored. But here, I can’t even say a word."
After Rodriguez escorted David to safety outside the WTC, he returned to lead the others in the basement to safety as well.
While there, he also helped two other men trapped and drowning in the basement elevator shaft, another result he says of the explosives placed below the tower.
In fact, after leading these men to safety, he even made another trip back into the north tower, against police orders, in order to rescue people from the top floors.
"I never could make it to the top, but I got up to the 33rd floor after getting some of my equipment and a face mask out of the janitor’s closet," said Rodriguez, adding he heard a series of small explosions going off between the 20th and 30th floors, unrelated to the airplane strike, while making his way through the stairwell to the top floors.
"Also, when I was on the 33rd floor, I heard strange sounds coming form the 34th floor, loud noises like someone moving and thumping heavy equipment and furniture. I knew this floor was empty and stripped due to construction work so I avoided it and continued to make my way up the stairs."
Rodriguez said he finally reached the 39th floor before being turned back by fire fighters and then, reluctantly, started his descent back down and his own flight to safety while, at the same time, hearing explosions coming from the South Tower.
Building 7, another high-rise at the World Trade Center that fell on 9/11, also came down by planted explosives.
Larry Silverstein, who invested $130 million dollars in the WTC complex, received an insurance payout of $3 BILLION DOLLARS, in a September 2002 PBS documentary entitled 'America Rebuilds,' stated the following:
"I remember getting a call from the, er, fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, "We've had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it. And they made that decision to pull and then we watched the building collapse."
Don't believe what you read? Then watch the video for yourself:
Aside from 9/11 being a day of mass murder, it was also the largest monetary case of insurance fraud in the entire history of the United States! However, the 9/11 Commission was predictably silent on the matter of Silverstein's insurance fraud. The insurance policy he bought was for incidents of terrorism, and nothing else!! IF you or I did this, our asses would be sitting in prison right now, Silverstein however, became a billionaire through this fraud.
The Pentagon was not hit by American Airlines Flight 77 but by a smaller plane or a missile.
The Pentagon has to be the world's first airline crash site that featured no wreckage whatsoever! Furthermore, the Pentagon released five single frames of crash impact footage, which likewise show no plane! Recently, the Citgo gas station that is across the street from the Pentagon, released their security tape of the moments of the crash. There is no plane there, either!
And the Pennsylvania plane did not crash as a result of the revolt by the passengers but was brought down by the military.
Okay, first of all, the "passengers crashed the plane into the ground" story is the most ridiculous thing I have yet heard about 9/11. Doesn't it make much more sense that they would have wrested control of the plane from the terrorists, and then gotten instructions from the closest air-traffic control tower to put the plane into AUTOPILOT MODE and land it safely at the nearest airport, saving the lives of all who were on board that plane?
In a radio interview on February 27, 2004, Col. Donn de Grand-Pre made the following comments concerning the shoot-down of Flight 93 outside of Shanksville, PA USA:
John: And was United Airlines Flight 93 shot down in Pennsylvania by a U.S. or NATO pilot and was that what was supposed to hit the Pentagon?
DGP: No, that was hit at 10:00 hours. It was taken out by the North Dakota Air Guard. I know the pilot who fired those two missiles to take down 93.
John: Was it shot down because the airline pilots actually regained control of the hijacked auto-pilot or was that to replace the unmanned drone that was shot down?
DGP: No, it was the aircraft, you see, had totally unconscious people on board. There were no hijackers. At 9:35, the Happy Hooligans, the Air Guard flying the F-16s were ordered to take that plane out. And they took it out from 9:35 to 10:00.
John: Were there any refueling jets involved in that operation?
AJ: Hold on a second, John. The question is why would they deviate from the plan of flying it into the Capitol? Why did the globalists decide to go ahead and shoot the plane down?
DGP: There had been an adjustment to the controls, probably by an AWACs aircraft flying overhead, again, remote control. And it was on a course for either the Capitol or the White House. And at this stage, you don't know. The Happy Hooligans came in and took care of it.
A retired military officer, Col. Donn de Grand-Pre, mentioned that Flight 93 was shot down by a group out of North Dakota Air Guard -- which calls themselves the HAPPY HOOLIGANS. I am inclined to believe this man, based upon his public writings, in which he is clearly an American Patriot. I'll believe Col. Donn de Grand-Pre before I will believe ANYTHING the Neo-Nazi-Cons say.
I’m amazed at how many people give credence to these theories. Everyone’s an engineer. People who never even took one college science course can now hold forth at great length on how the buildings at the World Trade Center could not possibly have collapsed in the way they did and why the Pentagon could not have been struck by that American Airlines jet.
No, I am NOT an engineer, and I never claimed to be.
But, I do know enough to listen to the real engineers about the events of 9/11, and what they had to say directly contradicted the official-fiction of the governments own creation.
The engineers associated with FIRE ENGINEERING magazine had published a report that the towers fell from a cause other than what the government reported, and called for a truly independent investigation. Here, Mr. Rothschild clearly does not understand his subject matter, or he prefers to misrepresent that numerous INDEPENDENT building and fire-safety engineers have stated that the ONLY way the WTC 1, 2, and 7 could have fallen were from CONTROLLED DEMOLITION. Bill Manning, editor of FIRE ENGINEERING magazine, was likewise troubled by the destruction of material evidence. The steel beams were cut down and sold for scrap, and sent to China, where they would remain inaccessable to independent investigators.
To add to the government's consciousness of guilt, before this steel and iron was shipped away, it was guarded by Wackenhut guards, who were told to "shoot to kill" if anyone tried to access the site. Fortunately, Professor Steven E. Jones was given a small piece of this steel, which he had tested in an independent lab. As I state earlier in this essay, this metal tested positive for THERMITE.
Watch the following two videos, and see for yourself that THERMITE was used at the WTC. The first video recorded an experiement that shows what Thermite looks like when it burns, and the second video below shows Thermite fires at the WTC. They look identical!
See? They look IDENTICAL ... and the only conclusion we may draw from this is that it was Thermite that was used at the WTC. Thermite burns at 2519° C or 4566° F -- and this is what you are seeing burn on the tower in the video above.
In the case of WTC 7, does the reader believe that this building was wired some time between 8:46am and 5:20pm of that day? Or, is it more LIKELY that the buildings were wired in the summer of 2001, after Silverstein took control, and during the times when employees were prevented from entering the building, because of alleged upgrades to the buildings security?
And if that isn't enough circumstantial evidence -- the name of the company that was hired to "clean up" the WTC site was CONTROLLED DEMOLITION, INC. They are known as the preeminent experts in the demolition of buildings of all types. This company also "cleaned up" the Murrah building site after the April 19, 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.
Problem is, some of the best engineers in the country have studied these questions and come up with perfectly logical, scientific explanations for what happened.
The American Society of Civil Engineers and FEMA conducted an in-depth investigation of the World Trade Center. The team members included the director of the Structural Engineering Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the senior fire investigator for the National Fire Protection Association, professors of fire safety, and leaders of some of the top building design and engineering firms, including Skidmore Owings & Merrill in Chicago, Skilling Ward Magnusson Barkshire in Seattle, and Greenhorne & O’Mara in Maryland.
It concluded that massive structural damage caused by the crashing of the aircrafts into the buildings, combined with the subsequent fires, “were sufficient to induce the collapse of both structures.”
The National Institute of Standards and Technology did its own forty-three volume study of the Twin Towers. “Some 200 technical experts . . . reviewed tens of thousands of documents, interviewed more than 1,000 people, reviewed 7,000 segments of video footage and 7,000 photographs, analyzed 236 pieces of steel from the wreckage, [and] performed laboratory tests and sophisticated computer simulations,” the institute says.
It also concluded that a combination of the crash and the subsequent fires brought the towers down: “In each tower, a different combination of impact damage and heat-weakened structural components contributed to the abrupt structural collapse.”
The engineers that Mr. Rothschild mentions above, are all related to the government, and as such, they will stick to the script as it had been written for them. The debris that fell from WTC 1 & 2 was microscopic, and there were no pieces of much of anything. Does a fire pulverize acres of cement? Does an aluminum airplane have the power to fly through a wall of heavy metal beams, which were all interconnected, and which increased their tensile strength?
Here, it is clear that Rothschild's combination of Ad Hominem attacks and his use of Straw Man arguments are clearly falling apart, as evidenced by the next paragraph below, which talks about how important the Popular Mechanics hit-piece was, while he completely ignores that the editor of that magazine -- Benjamin Chertoff -- is a cousin of Michael Chertoff -- the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
Popular Mechanics, first in its March 2005 cover story and now in its expanded book, Debunking 9/11 Myths, after interviewing scores of other experts in the engineering field, takes apart the most popular contentions of the conspiracists. “In every case we examined, the key claims made by conspiracy theorists turned out to be mistaken, misinterpreted, or deliberately falsified,” the book says.
I made a few calls myself, including to Gene Corley, who conducted the American Society of Civil Engineers/FEMA study, and to Mete Sozen, structural engineering professor at Purdue, who was one of the principal authors of “The Pentagon Building Performance Report” of January 2003, which was done under the auspices of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Structural Engineering Institute. I also contacted engineering professors at MIT and other leading universities in the country, and none of them puts any stock in the 9/11 conspiracy theories. In fact, they view them as a huge waste of time. They are busy trying to figure out how to prevent buildings from falling in the future.
Of course, any conspiracy theorist worth his or her salt will claim that all these people are in on the plot.
And that I am in on it, too.
Get over it.
These people continue to claim that real journalists like myself, are left-wing conspiracy theorists. However, every single one of the 300+ articles that I have published on my own website, all contain extensive source notes, and not a single person has been able to discredit anything I have written.
First of all, my political philosophy is dependant on the issue. On some issues, I am extremely conservative. On others, I am extremely liberal. I have never voted along party-lines, preferring instead to allow individual candidates say what they have to say, and then I make my decisions in the voting booth. This also describes most people I know -- who depending on the candidate's position on an issue -- they decide whether or not to support that candidate with their vote.
That is, WHEN I voted. I haven't voted in the past several elections, because it doesn't matter whoI vote for -- these people are s'elected and NOT elected.
The guru of the 9/11 conspiracy movement is David Ray Griffin, an emeritus professor not of engineering but of philosophy and theology at the Claremont School of Theology. First in The New Pearl Harbor and then in The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions and now in Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11, Griffin has peddled his conspiracy theory.
No one considers David Ray Griffin to be a guru, such as Reverend Moon, whom George Bush Sr. finances and pals around with. I have seen several of Griffin's lectures, and he states right at the beginning of his talks, that what he is presenting is a COMMON SENSE version of 9/11. Furthermore, he makes use of many arguments put forth by the government, just to show how ridiculous they are.
If anything, the Global Elite believe that we are "stupid cattle," and they refer to us as "useless eaters." So, it must have come as quite a shock to them when the vast resources of many independent researchers have come forward to show that things simply could NOT have happened the way the government claims. There are tens of thousands of websites the world over that have proven to one degree or another, how the government's official-fiction could NOT possibly be true.
In my own research library, I have all of the major BOOKS AND DVD's that were released, concerning the events of 9/11. Every one of the authors of the books have provided extensive footnoting and source notes. Every one of the DVD's contain video docuumentary footage that show blasting squibs puffing smoke out of the towers as they were collapsing. One of the DVD's was a Discovery Channel documentary, where the subject of the literal tons of steel and concrete was covered. Then, after providing this truth -- they fall back into the government's position of "the towers fell because of melting steel" -- and the diagram they use to support their claim shows NONE of the steel beams that surrounded the building on each outside wall.
Even the FEMA report tries to say that there were no outside beams in WTC 1 & 2, in direct conflict with the buildings blueprints and photos taken during the construction of the buildings!
He’s not alone, of course. A myriad of websites devote themselves to this subject, and several films are circulating on it, including Loose Change. There’s even a group called Scholars for 9/11 Truth, which insists “the World Trade Center was almost certainly brought down by controlled demolitions.” Most prominent among these is Steven E. Jones, professor of physics and astronomy at Brigham Young University, whose primary field is not engineering but cold fusion, according to Debunking 9/11 Myths.
The Scholars For 9/11 Truth are nearly all college professors, and ones with PhD's at that. Another member of this group is Col. Robert Bowman, who is currently running for Congress in the 15th District of Florida. In a recent interview Col. Bowman granted me, he mentioned that he was in charge of Reagan's SDI [Strategic Defense Initiative] project, and it was Bowman himself who dubbed the program 'Star Wars.'
Professor Steven E. Jones from BYU is the developer of the cold fusion theory, and Rothschild completely ignores that in order for Jones to develop the working schema for COLD FUSION -- he was clearly ENGINEERING a new fuel technology. People like Rothschild DO NOT want anyone to make that connection, and this is the reason why I call attention to this EXTREMELY ADVANCED feat of engineering on the part of Professor Jones.
This alone shows their contempt for the American people.
The LOOSE CHANGE DVD clearly scares these elitists, especially as it was produced by a group of kids in their early twenties. I have a copy of this DVD, and it has to be embarassing to have the government's own CONSPIRACY THEORY taken apart by a group of kids barely out of their teens. In case the reader has missed this documentary, I have reproduced part 1 immediately below. The reader can get an idea from watching this first part -- as to whether or not the DVD's arguments are sound and valid:
The conspiracy theories are particularly popular on the left for a couple of understandable reasons. It’s undeniable that Bush has ceaselessly seized on 9/11 to justify his warmaking abroad and his repressive policies at home. And then there’s the notorious phrase in a document of the Project for the New American Century, the fount of neoconservativism, whose members included Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, and a host of other hawks who flew into the Bush Administration. That line, from the September 2000 study “Rebuilding America’s Defenses,” argues for transforming the U.S. military posture into a much more aggressive one, and for expanding the Pentagon’s budget to reach $500 billion a year. The authors recognized that this transformation would be difficult to achieve quickly “absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event—like a new Pearl Harbor.”
Here, Rothschild uses the tired old technique known as the LIMITED HANG-OUT. This is where certain small aspects of a crime are admitted to, while refusing to address or validate the rest of the facts. Here, the PNAC document 'Rebuilding America's Defenses' is a literal roadmap to fascist empire building, based upon military preemption -- we hit our enemies BEFORE they have a chance to hit us first.
The problem was that every single one of Bush Jr's preemptive strikes have been built upon LIES -- so much so that this man is clearly pathological -- and appears incapable of telling even the smallest of truths. Yet another thing that Rothschild neglects to mention is that PNAC was filled with individuals who carry dual citizenship with Israel and the USA. And with them, its' ALWAYS Israel first, and the USA last.
Some of these people have been suspected of being MOSSAD moles.
Griffin and other leftwing conspiracy theorists put the two together, and voila. The attacks “were orchestrated in order to pave the way for launching unprovoked wars on two countries that provided no threat, whether imminent or long-term, to the people of the United States,” he writes in Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11. “The Administration and its Pentagon even planned to use 9/11 as a pretext . . . to attack still more countries. The U.S. government was planning, therefore, to use the deaths of some 3,000 people (whom itself had killed) to justify wars that would most likely kill and maim many hundreds of thousands of people, perhaps millions.”
Here, Rothschild falls back on the tired leftwing accusations, of which nearly NO ONE I personally know from all my family, friends, and my Internet friends thinks in terms of LEFT and RIGHT. Most intelligent people are past that tired paradigm -- but the ones' who desperately cling to the RIGHT-LEFT PARADIGM are the dullards who voted for Bush Jr. because he SAID he was a Christian, and Jesus was his favorite philosopher.
Actions ALWAYS speak louder than words, and in which case, the inference BY HIS OWN BEHAVIOR, that George Bush Jr. is a soulless Satanist, who is more likely to privately espouse the doctrines of ANTON LaVEY than he does Jesus Christ.
Before taking some of the major conspiracy claims one by one, let’s examine how outlandish the conspiracy theory is on its face.
First, Osama bin Laden has already claimed responsibility for the attack several times and boasted of the prowess of the suicide bombers who hijacked those planes. Why not take him at his word? And if bin Laden were working in cahoots with the Bush Administration, why was the President warned on August 6, 2001, in a Presidential daily briefing that Osama bin Laden was about to attack the United States? Wouldn’t that risk exposing the conspiracy?
Actually, Mr. Rothschild, Bin Laden denied involvement in the attacks by the end of September 2001. This was covered by the news media on that day. Once again, Rothschild hopes that we have FORGOTTEN ABOUT THIS. Fortunately, Kentroversy has a photographic memory, and the reader will find the link in the sources section at the end of this essay.
During an interview on September 28, 2001 -- Osama Bin Laden said the following -- which is entirely consistent with his Islamic religious beliefs:
"I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States. As a Muslim, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. I had no knowledge of these attacks, nor do I consider the killing of innocent women, children and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children and other people. Such a practice is forbidden even in the course of a battle. It is the United States, which is perpetrating every maltreatment on women, children and common people of other faiths, particularly the followers of Islam.
The one thing that the controlled news media of the USA does NOT want people to know is that the Bushes and the Bin Ladens were business partners through the Carlyle Group, through Bin Laden Construction, and the elder Bush and his wife have even vacationed at the Saudi palace of the Bin Laden family.
Second, if the Bush Administration plotters carried out 9/11 to justify attacking Iraq, why didn’t they have Iraqi hijackers do the deed? In actuality, there was not a single Iraqi hijacker, and Bush propagandists had to do all sorts of gymnastics to link Iraq to the actual attackers.
Once again, as I state above, there were no Arabs on those planes, and seven of the nineteen so-called hijackers were found to be alive in the days and weeks following 9/11. What is widely known is this -- the Bush administration LIED when they attempted to link Iraq and Saddam Hussein to Al-Qaeda -- or Al-CIAeda as it is more appropriately known. Osama Bin Laden, aka Tim Osman, has been a known CIA ASSET going back to the Mujahadeen-Russian war in Afghanistan in the late 1980's -- when they were known as FREEDOM FIGHTERS.
Some of the alleged hijackers had ID's that placed them living and training at military bases in Florida, where they were trained by the TRUE CABAL that carried out the attacks. Rothschild and his criminal brethren DO NOT want people to know this, and it is the precise reason WHY I am mentioning it.
Third, for this conspiracy to have succeeded, it would have had to have been amazingly vast: not only the high level members of the Bush Administration (including the head of the Secret Service, Griffin says in Christian Faith) and the explosives teams, but also many others.
Obviously, Mr. Rothschild has never heard of TOP SECRET SECURITY CLEARANCES. These oaths of secrecy that are taken by various agents of the government have successfully concealed plans for HUGE PROJECTS, like the Manhattan Project, which involved some 50,000 people -- and it was NEVER LEAKED before the bombs went of in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Compared to the Manhattan Project, 9/11 was relatively small potatoes.
Griffin, in Pearl Harbor, for instance, alleges that Mayor Rudolph Giuliani may have been involved. Griffin quotes Giuliani telling ABC News, “We were operating out of there [Building 7] when we were told that the World Trade Center was gonna collapse.” Griffin says Giuliani had no obvious way of knowing that, and concludes: “Giuliani’s statement provides, therefore, evidence someone, perhaps he himself, knew something that the firemen in the buildings did not know—which was perhaps that explosives had been placed in the buildings and were about to be set off.” Is that really evidence? Isn’t it much more likely that the firefighters told the mayor to leave because the fire itself was jeopardizing the building?
Since a high-rise building has never before or since collapsed from fire alone, this supposition by Rothschild is complete hogwash. It is far more likely that the mayor was in on the scam, and he knew what was going to happen well in advance. In order to control his statements to the press and television news media, the REAL TERRORISTS would have provided him with a suitable script, outlining the part that he was to play on that day. Otherwise, they would have had one or more MISTAKES ON THEIR HANDS before the day was out.
But, Rudy played his part well, and the Governorship of New York will be his reward.
Griffin also alleges that Larry Silverstein, who leased the World Trade Center complex, was in on the deal so he could collect the insurance. (This claim—which he might as well have called “The Jew Cashed In”— dovetails with the anti-Semitic conspiracy theory popular in the Middle East that the Mossad blew up the towers and warned the thousands of Jews who would have been working there to stay home.)
Here Rothschild attempts to assign anti-semitic statements to David Ray Griffin, which tells us two things: first, this is how DESPERATE these people have become. Second, he should watch what he says, because his is real close to SLANDER.
The ODIGO company (which WAS proven to be a MOSSAD front) DID in fact warn their employees to stay home on that day. Proof? Not a single death from 9/11 hit this company, which sent all their employees a text message to stay home on that day.
Is it an act of anti-semitism for me to point this out?
Of course not, but remember, these people are REALLY DESPERATE at this point, as their new world order collapses before them.
Besides, who really cares what a slimy criminal thinks of them, anyway?
I sure don't ... I would NOT be able to do what I do if it did bother me!
In Pearl Harbor, Griffin quotes Silverstein in a 2002 PBS documentary recalling a conversation from the fire department commander on September 11 “telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, ‘We’ve had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.’ and they made that decision to pull and we watched the building collapse.” Griffin, who writes that Silverstein “made almost $500 million in profit from the collapse of Building 7,” says by “pull it” Silverstein was recommending that the building be demolished by explosives. Silverstein has flat-out denied that. By “pulling it,” he has said that he meant giving up on the firefighters’ efforts to save the building.
Specialists in the fields of explosives AND building controlled demolition has verified the real meaning of the phrase "Pull it!" It refers to bringing down a building by controlled demolition. Is Silverstein, the perpatrator of the largest monetary insurance fraud in the history of this country, a reliable witness for THIS or anything else?
The answer, dear reader, should be self-evident -- no way!!
Silverstein said this on camera, and with the confirmation by building demolition experts, "Pull it!" refers to a controlled demolition, and nothing else. Furthermore, the fires in WTC 7 were isolated, and watching any of the many 9/11 DVD's that show that building, easily confirm this. Having made a $2.8 BILLION DOLLAR profit on his insurance policy -- I have to wonder why this man was never questioned about this obvious case of insurance FRAUD.
Two books later, Griffin removes any ambiguity Silverstein’s “assertion that Building 7 was brought down by explosives, whatever the motive behind it, explains why and how it collapsed,” Griffin writes in Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11. But Silverstein never made such an assertion, and for Griffin to claim he did is, to say the least, a distortion.
See my previous comment about security clearances, above.
There is no distortion in Griffin's comments, because the real meaning of "Pull it!" has been verified as referring to a controlled demolition, where a building is brought down by explosives. If anyone is distorting things here, it is Mr. Rothschild. Again, does a member of the Rothschild dynasty make a reliable witness? Of course not, but desperate people often do desperate things.
The problems with a vast conspiracy theory are obvious. There’s the likelihood that someone along the chain would squeal. Members of the government have been engaged in far less treasonous plots (such as Bush’s designs on Iran), and whistleblowers have managed to get the information out to the likes of Seymour Hersh over at The New Yorker. And, on top of that, we’re supposed to believe that this incompetent Administration, which brought you Katrina, was somehow able to execute this grand conspiracy?
Most people in the 9/11 Truth movement believe MOSSAD to be the main instigators of 9/11, and not the gang who could not shoot straight. Personally, I believe that Bush Jr. is a marginally low-IQ situation, with a ton of stress on top of it all. And, he certainly wasn't the POWER in the Oval Office at any time during his Presidency. That distinction certainly goes to DICK CHENEY, a real son-of-a-bitch if ever there was one!
Some of the things that I have heard about this guy Cheney -- is that he is a REAL MONSTER -- and some of it is so horrible that I don't feel right printing it in this space. I will say it deals with sex, and the most brutal rapist suddenly becomes Prom King when compared to the MONSTER Cheney. Use the worst of your own imagination, multiply by 1,000 -- and draw your own conclusions.
“The government is not sufficiently competent to pull off such conspiracies and too leaky to keep them secret,” said Richard Clarke, the one-time counterterrorism czar for Clinton and Bush, in a blurb for Debunking 9/11 Myths. Clarke has been a harsh critic of Bush, and he was a strong supporter of John Kerry. Don’t you think Clarke would have blown the whistle had he known? And who was in a better position than he to know?
We are supposed to pay attention to what Richard Clarke says on a book jacket blurb, and BECAUSE he supported JOHN KERRY?! Both John Kerry and George Bush Jr. were and still are members of SKULL AND BONES, where they take an oath that supercedes any subsequent oath, including the Presidential Oath of Office!
Again, only the dullards who believe anything authority figures tell them, believe that there was any appreciable difference between Bush Jr. and Kerry.
They are but two heads on the same monster.
Finally, in Pearl Harbor, Griffin acknowledges one enormous, unfillable hole in the conspiracists’ theory: If Flight 77 did not hit the Pentagon, where did it go? And where did all sixty-four people on board go? Griffin pathetically answers: “One cannot expect that the revisionists, being independent researchers with limited budgets and no power to subpoena testimony, could answer all the questions raised by their alternative scenario.” But that doesn’t stop him from speculating, in a ghoulish way, about one piece of evidence that contradicts his Flight 77 notion: the phone calls from conservative Barbara Olson, who was on Flight 77, to her husband, Ted Olson, Bush’s solicitor general. Griffin casts doubt on whether the phone calls actually happened, noting that Olson “is very close to the Bush Administration.” At least in Pearl Harbor, Griffin recognizes the weakness of this argument. The conspiracy theorists “still need to explain, of course, what became of Barbara Olson, and also whether it is plausible that Ted Olson would have participated in a plan with that outcome,” he writes. In his latest book, though, Griffin does not appear bothered in the least, as he continues to cast doubt on Ted Olson’s account. He has swept Barbara Olson and sixty-three other people under the rug.
The Southern Ontario college professor by the name of AK DEWDNEY flew with two different types of cell phones, and found that no calls can be connected at the altitude they were flying at on 9/11. Project Achilles was a huge blow to the official-fiction of 9/11. It has decimated the "cell phone calls to loved ones" story, and rightly so. I encourage all readers to check out the Project Achilles link in the sources secttion below, for the full details of the experiment and its' outcome.
Has the reader been on an airplane on vacation or maybe a business trip? Do you remember what object is embedded into the seatbacks in front of where you sat during the flight? Look at the left seatback in the photo:
In the back of these seats on airplanes are satellite phones, which cost roughly $5.00 per minute. These are NOT cell phones, and THIS is the reason why it costs so much per minute to use them.
On to some of Griffin’s most oft-cited questions.
Why did dust clouds shoot out of the Twin Towers as they fell?
Or, as Griffin poses it in Pearl Harbor: “What other than explosives could turn concrete into powder and then eject it horizontally 150 feet or more?”
Corley, who headed up the investigation for the American Society of Civil Engineers and FEMA, gives a quick response to that. “That is simply the air pressure being pushed down,” he says. “Once the collapse started, then you had roughly a twenty-story building and roughly a thirty-story building acting as a very large mass to push everything down. The air pressure gets quite something, and the windows on the lower floors break, and you see puffs of smoke coming out of them.” Debunking 9/11 Myths offers the same explanation and cites structural engineer Jon Magnusson, who says this expulsion of air and debris is fairly common when buildings collapse.
Once again, Rothschild's experts are representing the government, and for that reason alone, they cannot be taken seriously.
Air pressure blew those towers into microscopic dust particles?!
Are you kidding me?!
All the concrete, all the office furniture, all the carpeting, all computers, all the asbestos, and every other thing that was in those buildings -- were blown up into dust. The force of air, at whatever intensity, cannot turn concrete into dust.
The whole issue of the buildings' collapse is another Achilles Heel for the traitors who have overrun our government. They have made such outrageous claims, that have been getting more peculiar as they go along.
Remember what William Rodriguez said above? He heard explosions coming from the sub-basement, and Steven E. Jones was given a piece of one of the support beams, which he had tested at an independent lab. It tested positive for THERMITE, an explosive that gets very hot, and is extremely dangerous. It can get as hot as 2000 degrees, and burns white-hot and leaves nearly no smell.
Why did the tower that was hit second fall first?
“All other things being equal, then, the tower that was struck first should have collapsed first. And yet, although the South Tower was struck seventeen minutes later than the North Tower, it collapsed twenty-nine minutes earlier,” writes Griffin in Pearl Harbor. The fact that the South Tower fell first, he concludes, “suggests that the collapse of these buildings was caused by something other than the fires.” But all things weren’t equal. “The damage done to the second building was more serious than the damage done to the first,” says Corley.
SOMETHING OTHER THAN THE FIRES, eh?
This is Rothschild's carrot to the 9/11 Truth Movement -- he dangles a possibility of an honest soul-cleansing -- by including Griffin's comment immediately above. Naturally, Rothschild does not hold any regard for the citizens of the USA, as he clearly thinks we are all stupid and unable to conduct research. Or, perhaps he is attacking Griffin, because like LOOSE CHANGE, Griffin's writing was compelling, and worked well to disprove many of the government's own conspiracy theories about 9/11.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology concurs. Its “Final Report on the Collapse of the World Trade Center Towers” notes that ten core columns were severed in the South Tower, whereas only six were severed in the North. And 20,000 more square feet of insulation was stripped from the trusses in the South Tower than the North. The report “found no corroborating evidence for alternative hypotheses suggesting that the WTC were brought down by controlled demolition using explosives planted prior to September 11, 2001.”
Of course, they are not going to admit that they are implicit in the cover-up official-fiction of that day's horrible events. NIST is affiliated with the government -- and the only thing upon which they can be depended -- is to stick with their funding source and benefactor, the government of the United States of America.
Also, in July and August 2001, there were times when the buildings were CLOSED. This was during normal business hours, and since these are dates after Silverstein bought the complex -- this is the most logical time when explosives were deployed throughout both towers.
FEMA, in their report on the collapsed buildings, tried to say there were no outter columns with diagrams throughout the report's book, which showed what has become known as the Pancake Effect. This is where one floor would fall to the floor imediately below. Then, the combined weight woud fall to the floor below, etc, etc. until the buildings fell completely in their own footprint.
Here, Rothschild is flat-out lying. In order for those buildings to fall, ALL of the columns would have needed to be severed. This was confirmed by the structual engineers and demolitions experts who have commented publicly on the matter of the WTC buildings' collapse.
What about Building 7?
This is a favorite of the conspiracy theorists, since the planes did not strike this structure. But the building did sustain damage from the debris of the Twin Towers. “On about a third of the face to the center and to the bottom—approximately ten stories—about 25 percent of the depth of the building was scooped out,” Shyam Sunder, the lead investigator for the National Institute of Standards and Technology, told Popular Mechanics.
What’s more, the fire in the building lasted for about eight hours, in part because there were fuel tanks in the basement and on some of the floors. “The building was designed for a fire duration of no more than about three hours,” says Corley. “Eight hours was way more than what that building was designed for.” (Corley, by the way, also headed up the investigation of the Murrah Building’s collapse in Oklahoma City.)
The National Institute of Standards and Technology is still studying the collapse of Building 7, but its initial report says: “NIST has seen no evidence that the collapse of WTC 7 was caused by bombs, missiles, or controlled demolition.”
Upon examination of the video footage of the collapse of WTC 7, it can be shown that there were only small isolated pockets of fire, and not a raging inferno inside the building.
What about the Pentagon?
Conspiracy theorists will bend your ear explaining that the American Airlines Boeing 757 couldn’t possibly have made such a small hole in the Pentagon. Griffin in Pearl Harbor: “The orifice created by the impact . . . was at most eighteen feet in diameter. Is it not absurd to suggest that a Boeing 757 created and then disappeared into such a small hole? . . . Can anyone seriously believe that a 125-foot-wide airplane created and then went inside a hole less than twenty-feet wide?”
First of all, the hole was actually ninety feet wide, according to the “Pentagon Building Performance Report” of January 2003, which the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Structural Engineering Institute put out. And Professor Sozen of Purdue, one of the authors of that report, has an explanation.
Here, Mr. Rothschild once again is lying. The hole was ninety-feet wide only after the upper floors of the Pentagon COLLAPSED. The original hole left by the Cruise Missile or whatever else hit that building, WAS ONLY EIGHTEEN FEET WIDE.
Here, we have the original impact hole at the Pentagon. I have also included a second photo with firemen standing near the hole, for the purpose of determining its' size. Is this hole NINETY-FEET WIDE, as Rothschild alleges? Or is it closer to the EIGHTEEN FEET as Griffin states in his book, and elsewhere? The third photo immediately above is a photo of the hole to which Mr. Rothschild refers, but, it was only AFTER the upper floors collapsed, that the hole widened to approximately ninety feet in width!
Again, this comment by Rothschild proves that the global elite all think we are a bunch of morons, incapable of understanding basic principles of measurement.
“The reinforced columns of the Pentagon destroyed the wings,” says Sozen. “That’s why the hole is smaller. It had to be smaller.” Since working on that report, Sozen has designed simulations at Purdue, and his results correspond with what happened to Flight 77, he says. Sozen, who identifies himself as a progressive, says it is “ridiculous to deny” that the American Airlines plane hit the Pentagon. And, he adds, if Flight 77 didn’t hit the Pentagon, where did it go and “what happened to the people in that plane”?
Okay, if this were true, why didn't the wings crumple outside of that small hole, where they would have ended up on the Pentagon's lawn?
But we know what happened to them. They died at the Pentagon. “All but five of the 189 people who died on the aircraft and in the Pentagon were later identified through DNA testing,” according to Debunking 9/11 Myths.
Examining pg. 10 (pg. 13 of PDF file) of the Operation Northwoods document, which can be found in the links below, explains the plan for getting rid of air passengers in a false-flag terror attack. DNA testing is only good if there is a pre-existing sample on file at some laboratory, and if these passengers were all random fliers, such samples would not exist.
The may have been able to tell the difference between samples, but, otherwise could not have identified individual people.
Furthermore, the fire at the Pentagon after impact was burning nearly white-hot, and it looks very similar to the THERMITE that was used at the WTC. The likelihood that they would have used Thermite at the Pentagon is extremely likely, especially if they were already using it at the WTC site, where the sub-basement fires were still well over 1,000 degrees fahrenheit, a week after 9/11. Remember, Thermite burns at the following temperatures: 2519°C, 4566°F. This is the logical reason why the basement pit of the towers were burning so hot one week later!
Finally, was Flight 93 shot down?
Griffin and many other conspiracists allege that Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania, was brought down not by the passengers struggling with the hijackers but by a U.S. missile. But we know from cell phone conversations that passengers on board that plane planned on confronting the hijackers. And, as Debunking 9/11 Myths notes, “a Cleveland air traffic controller assigned to Flight 93 heard signs of a struggle in the cockpit, followed shortly by screaming.”
Tapes of the conversations at the northeast regional headquarters for the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) confirm this, as Michael Bronner has shown in his August article for Vanity Fair entitled “9/11 Live: The NORAD Tapes.” Major Kevin Nasypany was the facility’s mission-crew commander that day, and the tapes show him frantically trying to figure what was going on and whether he had orders to shoot Flight 93 down.
“Gimme the call sign,” he says at 10:07. “Gimme the whole nine yards. . . . Let’s get some info, real quick. They got a bomb?”
But, as Bronner reports, by then “everyone on board is already dead. Following the passengers’ counterattack, the plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania at 10:03 a.m.”
The man who headed up the crash site investigation there was Matthew McCormick, a thirty-three-year veteran at the National Transportation Safety Board. “From my investigation there was no pre-impact stress to the airplane,” he told the Debunking authors.
This matter was already covered above, by the comments of Col. Donn de Grand-Pre, who spoke with the pilot who actually shot down the plane. The cockpit recording of the Flight's final moments contains an explosion just before the radio signal goes dead. When I first heard this, I thought it was evidence of a shoot-down. I played the recording to ten random people, and each of them thought it sounded like the plane was shot down.
To be sure, there are discrepancies and omissions in The 9/11 Commission Report, and the Pentagon and FAA appear to have not been fully truthful and forthcoming about what happened that day. Not every riddle that Griffin and other conspiracists pose has a ready answer. But almost all of their major assertions are baseless. And their own theories have such gigantic holes and require such monumental leaps of logic that they discredit themselves.
Here, once again, Rothschild is very keen to assign negative traits to many people who have spent many hours researching this issue, just because he does not like our conclusions. Once again, he tries a LIMITED-HANG-OUT, in which he admits the 9/11 Commission was not "fully truthful and forthcoming about what happened that day." But, as we read above, he uses the 9/11 Commission to support his arguments several times, and agrees with many of the Commission's conclusions.
He cannot have it both ways, try as he might.
At bottom, the 9/11 conspiracy theories are profoundly irrational and unscientific. It is more than passing strange that progressives, who so revere science on such issues as tobacco, stem cells, evolution, and global warming, are so willing to abandon science and give in to fantasy on the subject of 9/11.
The 9/11 conspiracy theories are a cul-de-sac. They lead nowhere. And they aren’t necessary to prove the venality of the Bush Administration. There’s plenty of that proof lying around. We don’t need to make it up.
He claims that sound research is unscientific, even when experts in their particular fields are consulted. The Project Achilles cell phone experiments alone show that A.K. Dewdney used the scientific method. I also employ the scientific method, mathematical logic, and common sense in my own research-journalism. As I have pointed out, there are several times when Mr. Rothschild has LIED, distorted the true facts, and employed Ad Hominem attacks, and Straw Man arguments in his poor attempt to discredit the 9/11 Truth Movement, of which I am a contributing member.
As I point out several times above, these people like Mr. Rothschild are growing desperate about their precious new world order. The education of the masses continues to win converts to our side of truth and justice, while eschewing the favored lies and obfuscations of the global elite. Now that the cat is out of the bag, so to speak, it is IMPOSSIBLE for us to go back to the times when we were ignorant to what we now know are self-evident truths.
I wanted to provide a point-by-point rebuttal of Rothschild's thesis, because on the face of it, it was poorly done. And, if this represents the BEST of that which our enemies are capable, then I have no doubt in my mind, heart, and soul -- that we will defeat these people when all is said and done.
