“… those hundreds of people, in Biloxi, Baraboo, Barstow, Butte, Bancroft and Brooklyn, … those people who, on Nov. 22, or Nov. 23, or Nov. 24, 1963 … or sometime during the following week, on a long or short walk … or at the kitchen table pouring Froot Loops for the kids or for themselves — those first persons who sat upright in bed at 2:35 a.m. and said, “This is bullshit.”

“These are not stupid men, presumably.
They are too tall and wearing suits and they are on TV and people know their names — and they know full well how their bread is buttered and by whom. They also did not say boo or you betcha when their fellow Minnesotan, Paul Wellstone, was murdered for having questioned the official 9/11 story.
“Jim Fetzer, Jessica Reznicek, Kevin Barrett, Ruby Montoya, Sophia Smallstorm, Frank Cordaro, and James Tracy should be preaching, cavorting, singing, dancing commando-style in the Belasco Theater every night for the next two years. … Then you would have something.
We are allowed to ask any questions that we have … there are no wrong questions.
There is no hidden black military budget, there are no UFO files Americans cannot see, no JFK documents that will not be opened during our lifetimes, no destroyed RFK murder photos by the L.A. police, no evidence from Ground Zero taken away before we can even look at it — we are not the U.S.S.R. of the 1960s — this is supposed to be America. That is our dream, to become America, The New America, the real hope of the world. …
… We have a dream …
… of bringing the United States politicians, journalists and generals who have brought about this long 13-year war and debacle to trial — and put on TV just like O.J. — every afternoon — so every American can watch … just like the McCarthy Hearings and the JFK funeral procession …
What we need is a New American Dream.
Not of new homes and toasters and microwaves, but of becoming the type of country we always thought we were.
Right now we live on lies. We subsist on lies, but it’s not really living.
911 was an inside job.
They all know that.
What we need in America is a Truth Commission like they had in South Africa to heal their broken country. We need to put certain people on the stand and we need to be allowed to ask questions.
Our country is surely broken as well.
The troops are not protecting us. That is someone’s spin on the day’s news – somebody’s advertising slogan — someone else’s sermon.
The troops serve the empire. They are not heroes. They kill and plunder for the empire. American bases overseas serve nobody but the empire. The heroes in our country are the protesters, the ones who go face to face with the empire, those in the Plowshares Movement, for one example.
You have to know that Donald Trump knows the whole truth about the 9/11 attacks. He is complicit. He has lied. He has continued the wars everywhere based on a lie. And he knows he is lying.
Trump lies right to our faces on national television just as Barack Obama did when he said that Osama bin Laden had been killed … and buried at sea. … Osama bin Laden was buried at sea … and Jessica Lynch was rescued heroically, the U.S.A. does not torture, Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, George Bush won the 2000 election, see, there is a plane there in that hole in Shanksville, it went all the way into that hole and no, there is no blood and no bodies and no luggage scattered … or plane parts … and Osama bin Laden … was buried at sea. …
Remember the anthrax letters, which said “Are You Afraid?” Those were not written with a rock and chisel like Fred Flintstone from the recesses of some cave in Afghanistan. Those letters came from persons within our own government.
Like a horror movie and the killer is in the same house with us.
These killers are right here, with us and “they” want us to be afraid.
Yes, 9/11 was an inside job.
How many times have we heard that, but look outside. You go. I’ll wait here.
… It bears repeating. I know, right?
I think we might have done something like that in a few of the images, but not most.
I am always amazed at the great work done by the artists involved in my book projects. I must thank Michael Paul Miller and Allison M. Healy for the inside artwork, and Russell Brutsche for the cover art.
I no longer believe that planes were used however. I think the deception goes much deeper than that.
