Watch the Vancouver Hearings! They’re Happening Right Now….

WATCH the 911 Vancouver Hearings (LIVESTREAM) – Starts Friday, June 15th at 6PM PST

 


  • The official account provided by the United States government is false
  • The search for truth requires that all possibilities be considered without prejudice
  • Theories must be compared on the basis of the relative probability of the evidence if they were true, where those with higher likelihoods thus defined are preferable to those with lower, where, when the evidence has “settled down”, the theory with the highest likelihood is “acceptable” in the tentative and fallible fashion of science

    facebookprogrammer – You have done your research very well. I too concluded that perps used an unarmed Kursk missile to create the Pentagon “foreign attack” diversion for their ongoing NYC urban demolition/renewal project at their leased WTC location, the latter masked by other segments of their buddies’ 102 minute special effects movie broadcast as “breaking news”. My suspicion is, however, that the missile was fired by colleagues from a land-based location and NORAD leaks were created to provide any “closing in” researchers with an ongoing foreign involvement narrative. My point is that this research, as well as any controversy arising therefrom, stimulates framing 911 discussions on matters that sidestep the fundamental issue of the identities of the real perps of that absurd MLM hoax.

  2. facebookprogrammer  June 27, 2012 at 7:33 am

    It has Halliburton after all that received the contract to raise the sunken Russian submarine “Kursk” whose twenty-four Russian P-700 Granit thermonuclear cruise missiles were reported stolen back in 2000. FYI, they have the Pentagon pre-loaded as a high value target in their systems, something no US/NATO missile would ever have in a million years. They also don’t require the older Legenda satellite guidance system to hit the Pentagon as it is hard coded into the on-board guidance system in case of fail over.

    http://www.themoscowtimes.com/business/article/halliburton-wins-kursk-rescue-deal/258397.html

    6 minutes before the Pentagon was struck, NORAD detected the launch of a P-700 Russian cruise missile 320 knots off the coast of Virginia in canyons where old German subs used to sneak in during WWII & they immediately rang the atomic alert for the 1st time in US military history, slammed shut all atomic doors @ Cheyenne Mountain, dispatched a squadron of fighters 320 knots over the Atlantic to ward off further attacks, launched the nuclear retaliation Doomsday jet & sent everyone to atomic bunkers where they called Moscow of all places demanding an explanation. Why Moscow? Why not ‘Osama Bin Laden’ in a cave? This isn’t the protocol NORAD follows for a ‘hijacking’ half-way across the country.

    As the missile reached D.C. you can hear the distinct sound of a P-700 thermonuclear cruise missile whiz right over CIA Porter Goss’ head during an interview across the street from the Pentagon and everyone runs for cover and the camera man nearly shits his pants.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q44verk-cwM

    The Pentagon is hit @ the water-line level just inches above the ground without harming a single blade of grass (this is an anti-ship missile designed to hit @ the water-line level) puncturing all 6 capital steel rings in a split second @ Mach 2.0 leaving the same 1 meter diameter puncture in each ring consistently. No US missile can do this. You could play golf on the Pentagon lawn after the devastating attack because the lawn was left pristine.

    If you study the flight pattern put forth by the FAA you will notice how it side-winds on 30 degree angles @ Mach 2.5 and very gracefully in order to avoid counter measures. When it reaches its final destination, it circles its target in a breathtaking G-laden manoeuvre and descends to just inches above the ground before penetrating. No military plane or US missile can perform these manoeuvres and NORAD till this day does not have the capability to intercept this missile so stop with the ‘stand down order’ conspiracy bullshit. Why do you think the military got on the phone with Moscow demanding an explanation just seconds before the Pentagon was hit? Perhaps Vladimir Putin knew where ‘Bin Laden’ was that morning? 6 minutes *before* the Pentagon was physically struck and NORAD detected it?

    FYI, the missile was clearly disarmed – the point was to send the message that ‘we have nukes’. Interesting whenever the ‘terrorists’ make new threats, they always state they have 500 KT nuclear warheads – precisely the same warheads that were lifted during the Kursk ‘rescue’ operation.

    So, what’s unclear about the fact that the old WTC buildings were commercially demolished as much as an hour after a fake “attack” event broadcasted in the initial segment of a prepared 102 minute special effects Hollywood movie shown to television viewers as “breaking news”? You want to see a hilarious and obviously fake “news” broadcast regarding WTC7? Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4Vrsjs_cLg. Start with the victims hoax and work backwards, if you wish. It sure seems pretty clear to an increasing number of people. If this is unclear to you, it is certainly not because I prefer to make it so.

    There should be a DVD or at least CD of the Vancouver Conference for sale, but I have no information about this yet.

    I really wish there would be a video about the conference with clips of each of the speakers and some kind of summary or distillation of each speaker’s points and positions. That would be excellent and could be done by receiving the approval of each of the speakers as far as the accuracy of the summarization. This would provide something to “go viral” on the web and would invite responses and discussions. It could be sold to help defray costs of the conference, just as the full DVD or CD of the entire conference could.

    There needs to be some kind of media vehicle for there to be a good follow-up vigorous debate so that this conference does not just fade away. We want something to come it now to make the good current information about 9-11 become part of the CURRENT state of knowledge regarding 9-11 truth. It would be very sad if this conference faded away and all the 9-11 truth “community” is left with is “The Toronto Hearings”, the video “Blueprint for Truth” by Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth, and AE’s latest video “Experts Speak Out”. There is a vast and better world of 9-11 truth and it can be gleaned from the viewpoints of the speakers at the Vancouver conference.

    P.S. responding to Mr. Ogilvie’s posting here…

    “… together with video fakery regarding building demolitions, including WTC-7,

    … the nature of the media hoax and building demolitions ….”

    The “video fakery” and the “media hoax” that Mr. Ogilvie is referring to are probably the exact same ideas of Simon Shack (of September Clues video fame) as stated here…

    When did they know? 36 Truth leaders on how they awakened to the 9/11 lie
    Posted: January 11, 2012

    probably are the same “and “pyroclastic, top-down tower collapses…
    – the collapses themselves were as digitally crafted as the Empire State Building seen collapsing (TOP-DOWN!) in the 1996 blockbuster Independence Day. …

    The collapse imagery – all of it – as well as the images showing people jumping from the towers – has by now been proven fake (digitally animated) in every imaginable way. Unfortunately, the bulk of the 9/11 “truth movement” has been hoodwinked into holding these phony, collapse animations as “proof of controlled demolition.”
    In reality, the towers were of course demolished (although most likely behind a smokescreen) – but there simply is no photographic record of those brief events. ” end of quotes from Simon Shack

    The misnomered “collapse” imagery is really the destruction imagery as there was no “collapse” of the Twin Towers. Dr. Fetzer and most of the speakers at his conference do not “buy” the “controlled demolition” rhetoric or schtick of Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth (Richard Gage and company). Most of them hold that only Building 7 could possibly be described as a conventional “controlled demolition.”

    I have never seen any video or read any article where the “collapse [destruction] images” of the Towers have been ” proven fake (digitally animated) in every imaginable way. ”

    The video fakery that Dr. Fetzer and many of his conference presenters do accept and hold to “video fakery” in New York City on 9-11, but this position is related to fake planes and fake crashes into the Towers and does not relate to there being faked videos of the destruction in progess of each Twin Tower.

    Simon Shack, and probably his acolyte Mr. Ogilvie, believe that the WTC buildings were in actually destroyed but they were somehow destroyed at the time of the actual events but there is no film record of their destruction in progress, so all commentary and hypothesizing on the “collapse videos” that we have are simply duped 9-11 truth seekers responding to faked videos.

    Just needed to make that clear for the record so everyone is clear on exactly what Mr. Ogilvie is contending, even if he himself seems to prefer not to be clear.

    I invested the $20.00 to watch the hearing and it was well spent.I gained a wealth of knowledge,got to see some of the authors in person,and was able to see the human psyche through the disagreements.I was impressed that the people scheduled to speak were free to let it hang out if you will and it did get spirited at times.The audience was passionate and knowledgeable.

    The only drawbacks were the sound which lagged behind the speaker so it was like watching Bonanza in Japanese.I can’t wait until the recommendations or indictments come out and see the reaction from any of the public that is able to view the final steps.

    I would like to see a transcript made available of the hearing.There were parts that I missed albeit short but I would appreciate being able to peruse the testimony.

    I will say that Dr. Fetzer is a spirited resource who is extremely well versed and is an excellent moderator.

  6. Stewart Ogilby  June 16, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    My conclusion is that “events” pertaining to airplanes, together with video fakery regarding building demolitions, including WTC-7, were staged to frame discussions of 911 around confusing and inevitably controversial issues for the purpose of distracting investigators from focusing on the faked terrorist attack’s fundamental issues – the nature of the media hoax and building demolitions in a financially unattractive commercial area.

    This clever tangential device has, obviously, effectively shielded perpetrators of 911, along with their affilatiates, from exposure for more than a decade. It has enabled them to realize huge gains in propaganda and geo-political strategy, primary aims of the 911 charade. It has also kept the lid on massive insurance fraud.
