Beck: 9/11 Truthers “Insane”, “Dangerous Anarchists”, “The Kind Of Group A Timothy McVeigh Would Come From”

CNN host lays into truth movement in vicious attack

CNN host Glen Beck viciously attacked the 9/11 truth movement last night on his Headline Prime show, describing the whole movement as “insane” and branding 9/11 activists as “dangerous anarchists”.

Beck singled out 9/11 truthers in a segment in response to the infiltration of Real Time with Bill Maher by We Are Change protesters last week.

In a piece that we would normally associate with the “fair and balanced” Fox News, Beck featured two guests who BOTH argued against 9/11 truth, as well as throwing in his own two cents.

“These truthers are exactly the kind of people who want to rock this nation’s foundation, tear us apart and plant the seeds of dissatisfaction in all of us” Beck huffed and puffed while introducing his yes men.

At one point Beck even suggested that the 9/11 truth movement is “the kind of group a Timothy McVeigh would come from”, insinuating the movement is intent on violence.

In response his guest, Michael Shermer, the founding member of “The Skeptics Society”, a debunking body that is actually skeptical of nothing and just defends the official line on most subjects, ludicrously frothed “Yeah that’s right, that’s what makes it a little bit scary, somebody that would infiltrate a talk show like Bill Maher’s show and then heckle him during the show, that’s getting out there a little bit, that’s not just posting things on the internet for fun to see what happens, but actually going down there to do something.”

Watch it (Note: Try to ignore the remarks at the beginning of the video which was obviously posted by a neocon bootlicker):

 

In thousands of 9/11 protests over the course of the last six years, not one person has been arrested for violent conduct. To cart blanche suggest that the truth movement is dangerous, “a threat to children” and intent on violence is extremely inflammatory and indicates just how afraid of investigating and debating the facts people like Glen Beck actually are.

The core of the 9/11 truth movement is composed of highly educated and progressive individuals who are strictly opposed to violence and are intent on protecting a free and peaceful society which has been under dire threat ever since the attacks of 9/11 and the ensuing cover up.

Furthermore the movement represents the very antithesis of anarchism in that it is actively seeking to restore and protect our traditional form of government which has been usurped by an unaccountable cabal that continues to operate outside of Constitutional law and with little restraint using 9/11 as justification.

Naturally, Beck wheeled out the ever present James Meigs, whitewasher-in-chief at the military-industrial complex rag Popular Mechanics, which is owned by Hearst Publishing, the progenitor of the term “yellow journalism”.

Meigs is of course exactly the right man to dismiss claims of a controlled demolition on 9/11 given that he has a background in being a movie critic. Meanwhile experts in controlled demolition are visibly shaken when shown videos of building 7 and told that it came down on 9/11.

Meigs’ assertions have been thoroughly debunked, even by the bodies investigating the collapses of all three buildings. Meigs still regularly refers to the pancaking theory when describing the collapse of the twin towers, to explain how they collapsed without resistance, despite the fact that the theory was debunked by NIST itself after their study found that, “This type of assembly (the WTC steel) was capable of sustaining a large gravity load, without collapsing for a substantial period of time relative to the duration of the fires in any given location on September 11th.”

It also violates the fundamental law of physics and the Law of Conservation of Momentum, as Professor Steven Jones outlines in his research paper.

Meigs also routinely fails to acknowledge the fact that NIST’s own analysis of the WTC steel concluded that temperatures in the impact zone reached no hotter than 600 degrees, no where near hot enough to weaken the structure, according to the Final Report of the National Construction Safety Team on the Collapses of the World Trade Center Towers.

NIST admitted recently that it is STILL unable to provide an explanation for the total collapse of the twin towers, yet Mr Meigs seems assured, spending much of his time wailing about how truthers “do not fact check”.

Meigs also maintains that building 7 was severely damaged and ultimately felled by fires caused by falling debris from the towers, even though there is no evidence supporting this and NIST has been left with the only option but to probe whether the building was demolished on purpose.

Beck and his guests also maintain that the WTC “buildings”, thus including the one which was not hit by a plane, did not collapse from the bottom down. Anybody who watches the collapse of 7 can see that it falls from the bottom down, yet Beck and co. accuse others of ignoring the facts to fit their own agenda!

The three musketeers also fail to explain why first responders were told to evacuate the area because the building was going to be intentionally brought down, why police officers heard bombs tearing down the building and why a top security official who was stationed in WTC 7 witnessed bombs take out the lobby of the building before either WTC tower had collapsed.

Beck also bizarrely suggests that 12 percent of people polled believe that the government was involved in 9/11 when the actual numbers are much higher, with some polls suggesting around 80 percent.

The only accurate statement Beck makes is in suggesting that the U.S. government, or factions within it, were not competent enough to pull off 9/11 without it being discovered and ending up all over prime time news. In this he is entirely correct, it is all over prime time news, as well as prime time entertainment such as the Bill Maher show.

 Finally Beck asked his viewers to back him up on this one by voting in a poll very fairly entitled Conspiracy Craziness: Anyone who believes our government could have successfully planned 9/11 is not only giving them too much credit, but they’re also insane. Do you agree or disagree?

Lets take a look at the latest results:

It seems the majority can quite clearly see where Mr Beck is wrong.

Sunday NY Post Blacks Out Ron Paul

October 22, 2007

Even though Jeffersonian conservative presidential candidate Ron Paul has declared the media blackout of his candidacy is over, don’t tell that to the editors of the New York Post.

The “conservative” paper owned by Media Mogul Rupert Murdoch, has managed the feat of covering the Family Research Council’s recent “Values Voter” presidential debate, and ranking candidates according to their popularity with “values voters” without mentioning third-place finisher GOP presidential contender Ron Paul (R-Tex).

The page 4 story in the Sunday Post, “Religious Right Rejects [Giuliani’s] Values Plea” chooses to report only the “onsite voting results” and then actually drops off Ron Paul’s name. It also manages to write a full article without mentioning either Ron Paul or his results. This is in marked contrast to other major news outlets (CNN, Daily News) that mention Ron Paul and his results as an obviously routine part of the coverage of the Values Voter debate.

Maybe there was justification in leaving Ron Paul out of commentary in a crowded field six months ago. But Ron Paul has now raised more money than most of his fellow GOP candidates and finished higher, on average, in more straw polls than any other GOP candidate.

Coming from behind as a “dark horse,” Ron Paul is arguably the biggest story in American politics in this political year – one of the reasons that, as a free-market news site, FMNN has continually covered him and his campaign.

At this point, the New York Post would seem to owe its readers an explanation of just what its editorial really policy is and what it considers a “conservative.” Even in its own press release, the Family Research Council chose to highlight the on-line straw poll rather than the smaller “onsite” poll results.

Nearly six thousand votes – 5,775 – were cast in the first-ever Values Voters Straw Poll at FRC Action’s 2nd Annual Washington Briefing. FRC Action members had the choice of voting on-line, by mail, or at electronic voting stations during this weekend’s event. All presidential candidates from both parties were listed on the ballot. The following are the straw poll results:

Candidate Name Total Votes Percentage
1. Mitt Romney 1,595 27.62 %
2. Mike Huckabee 1,565 27.10 %
3. Ron Paul 865 14.98%
4. Fred Thompson 564 9.77 %
5. Sam Brownback 297 5.14 %
6. Duncan Hunter 140 2.42 %
7. Tom Tancredo 133 2.30 %
8. Rudy Giuliani 107 1.85 %
9. John McCain 81 1.40 %

* The full results can be accessed at http://www.frcaction.org

The straw poll voting process is constructed so that each member of FRC Action will only be able to vote one time regardless of how the voting occurs (i.e. US mail, email alert or at the event). Every member of FRC Action has a unique identifier which must be used in order to vote electronically.

Loose Change Final Cut Release Date Announced

October 22, 2007

Internet phenomenon to arrive November 11th, features all-new material and interviews

After many months of anticipation, a release date has finally been announced for Loose Change Final Cut, the pre-eminent 9/11 truth documentary. The film, which features all-new material and interviews, will hit the web on November 11th and also be available to order on DVD that same day.

The original Loose Change and Loose Change 2nd Edition have been viewed at least 50 million times over the Internet, making it one of the most watched movies in history, but the Final Cut goes above and beyond, making it not simply the third in a trilogy but a completely new film with oodles of unseen footage, commentary, interviews and eyewitness testimony.

The film will first be available online as a digital media download at PrisonPlanet.com, Infowars.com and LooseChange911.com on November 11th, and orders will be taken for the DVD that same day before being shipped out on November 26th.Part of the revenue from the sales will be donated to 9/11 victim’s charities such as The Feal Good Foundation and WTC Families for Proper Burial.

The movie is being rushed out as soon as it was completed because of the importance of the information and as a safeguard to prevent more government sponsored terror.

The film will be subject to selected cinematic release in 2008, but many grassroots and selected theatres have already agreed to pick up the movie from December onwards across the U.S and Europe and the Loose Change team are encouraging activists to ask that their local theatre to screen the documentary.

Loose Change Final Cut trailer. 

“Many of you have asked us about a mainstream theater release and are aware that we spent considerable time in Hollywood negotiating with different producers,” reads the Loose Change press release. “After many weeks of consideration, we decided that a Hollywood release just isn’t right for Loose Change. In order to access the normal “big movie” distribution channels, we would have to relinquish editorial control of the film. This just wasn’t an option for us, as the integrity of our message is ultimately all that we have, and we feared that “the machine” would corrupt or squash our film and its movement.”

“We have decided to challenge the traditional marketing channels and reinvent the way that films are distributed,” it adds.

After a great deal of speculation about whether Charlie Sheen will narrate the movie, the actor decided to refrain from doing so in order to concentrate on his family and to focus on his number one TV show.

When this was first mooted several months ago, The New York Post, Fox News and others attempted to spin this decision and claim that Sheen had recanted and completely backed away from the 9/11 truth movement.

In reality, Sheen had done nothing of the sort, and immediately issued a statement re-affirming his commitment to 9/11 truth, resolving that his “Views and convictions regarding the events of 9/11 have not wavered.”

Loose Change Final Cut will feature new and exclusive interviews with firefighters, EMT’s, first responders and other officials who were all eyewitnesses to multiple secondary explosions in the twin towers and around the ground zero area.

The release of Final Cut will no doubt be met with a fresh offensive of Neo-Con attack propaganda and attempted debunking, but with polls showing an increasing amount of people having grave concerns about the official 9/11 story, its arrival will herald a new leap forward for the 9/11 truth movement and signify the next step in educating the world about what really happened on September 11, 2001.

NY Post Censoring Ron Paul

October 22, 2007

The NY POST has an article today regarding the recent Family Research Council’s Straw Poll. The focus of the article was on the terrible results achieved by Rudy Guiliani. The article includes a list of the results, and neglects to include Ron Paul’s 3rd place finish, as if he was not even there! Here is a image of the table as it appears in the hardcopy of today’s NY Post:Here are the official results directly from Family Research Council’s website.

Everyone write to the NY Post and let them know we will no longer tolerate the memory-holing and censorship of RON PAUL. Here is the address to do so: letters@nypost.com
