Mike Palacek’s “New American Dream” — Post 9/11

Presented on the occasion of Minnesota 9/11 Truth’s 10th year observance of 9/11 in the Rotunda of the Capitol in St. Paul, MN, 11 September 2011. We have a dream … Mike Palacek … of bringing the United States politicians, journalists and generals who have brought about this long ten-year war and debacle to trial — and put on TV just like O.J. — every goddamned afternoon — so every American can watch … just like the McCarthy Hearings and the JFK funeral procession … —— What we need is…

The BBC’s Instrument of 9/11 Misinformation

The BBC’s Instrument of 9/11 Misinformation Jim Fetzer (with Joshua Blakeney) The BBC’s “Instrument” For a second time, the BBC television network has produced a documentary about 9/11 featuring Dylan Avery, the producer of “Loose Change”’; Alex Jones, the talk show host; and me, the Founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth—this time accompanied by Neils Harrit, a chemistry professor from Denmark. The program is part of the BBC’s “Conspiracy Files” series. The first installment is available here. This one, now entitled, “The Conspiracy Files: ‘9/11: Ten Years On’”, was initially…

ARABIAN SUMMER OR NATO’S FALL?

ARABIAN SUMMER OR NATO’S FALL? Editor’s note: NATO’s intervention in Libya has caused me profound concern on multiple levels, since it entails attacking a sovereign nation that has not attacked us and demonizing a leader who, so far as I can tell, has done well by his people. I recommend this blog, by Christof Lehmann, a psychologist from Denmark, and another by Michel Chossudovsky, the editor of Global Research, who also discusses the role of the Western media as “an instrument of war”, where NATO’s crimes are obfuscated, “killing the…

Nanothermite: If It Doesn’t Fit, You Must Acquit!

Nanothermite: If It Doesn’t Fit, You Must Acquit! T. Mark Hightower (with Jim Fetzer) Those who remember the 1995 O.J. Simpson trial will recall the gloves that turned out to be “too small” for O.J.’s hands when the long-awaited day of trying them on in the courtroom finally arrived. The blood-soaked gloves (one found at the crime scene and the other outside O.J.’s house in Brentwood the morning after his former wife was murdered) were gloated over as “hard evidence” by the prosecution and the media, very comparable to how…

Confessions of a 9/11 Truth Activist

CONFESSIONS OF A 9/11 TRUTH ACTIVIST Steve Fahrney, an activist from 9/11 Truth San Diego, who had worked with Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (A&E) for about a year, contacted me because of his awareness of my research with T. Mark Hightower on the properties of nanothermite, “Is ‘9/11 Truth’ based upon a false theory?” He had a number of issues that he wanted to discuss related to A&E, including that he had discovered during his work with it that research on conventional explosives at the World Trade Center…

The Debate over 9/11 Truth: Kevin Ryan vs. Jim Fetzer

The Debate over 9/11 Truth: Kevin Ryan vs. Jim Fetzer Jim Fetzer  “The 9/11 Conspiracy: The Scamming of America” (2007) The publication of “Is ‘9/11 Truth’ based upon a false theory?” has led to many attacks upon me by Kevin Ryan, Niels Harrit, and others, as anyone who reviews the comments on that article can ascertain for themselves. In addition, a rather heated exchange has taken plane on an email thread initiated by T. Mark Hightower, the collaborating author of that article, which initially included Steven Jones, Kevin Ryan, Neils…

An Open Letter to Anthony Lawson about “Absurdities”

Re: “9/11: The Absurdity of the No-Planes-in-New York Theory” Anthony, Just for the record, you and I have gone round and round over this for years–where you have saved up every exchange we ever had so you could cull them for quotes taken out of context, exaggerate my positions, and suppress information about my actual views. As an example, you claim I have a lot of articles with similar names, but you doesn’t actually cite the most important among them, “New Proof of Video Fakery on 9/11” Moreover, you love…

Is “9/11 Truth” based upon a false theory?

Is “9/11 Truth” based upon a false theory? Jim Fetzer (with T. Mark Hightower) Given my background in the history and the philosophy of science and as a professional scholar, I founded Scholars for 9/11 Truth for the purpose of promoting collaborative research on the events of 9/11 by creating a web site, issuing press releases, archiving old research and supporting new research, sponsoring conferences, announcing public presentations, and making efforts to reach out to the public with the results of our investigations. The most intense conflicts in relation to…

Inside Job: More Proof of 9/11 Duplicity

More Proof of 9/11 DuplicityJim Fetzer My 4th of July article, “Inside Job: Seven Questions about 9/11”, raised questions about the events of 9/11 and whether more may have been involved than the official account of nineteen Islamic fundamentalists hijacking four commercial carriers, outfoxing the most sophisticated air defense system in the world, and perpetrating these atrocities under the control of a guy in a cave in Afghanistan. These are the first plane crashes in its history that have not been investigated by the NTSB. An FBI official, when asked…

Doubts about Bugliosi’s DIVINITY OF DOUBT

While this blog tends to focus on historical issues, such as the assassination of JFK, the events of 9/11, and other abuses of power and authority, as a professional philosopher, I well know there are other questions that also deserve consideration, such as the existence of God and the place of religion in human experience. David and I both have relationships with Vince and we find him to be a fascinating fellow. I liked what David had to say about his book, which had dimensions that had not occurred to…
