New Scripps Howard News Service/Ohio University poll shows increase in belief in conspiracy theories caused by mainstream media.
(BNN - November 24, 2007 - New York City.)
A Scripps Howard News Service/Ohio University poll of 811 adult residents of the United States shows nearly two-thirds of Americans think it is possible that some federal officials had specific warnings of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.
Eighty-seven percent of those who harbor such suspicions blame the mainstream media for "brainwashing" them into believing in various conspiracy theories.
The poll also found that 44% of Americans believe some in the government knew of the Kennedy assassination in advance; and 35% believe the government is hiding the existence of flying saucers from them.
An earlier poll showed that 71% of Americans believe television was their best source for news about the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Asked to comment on the poll, Dylan Avery said, "This poll confirms that the mainstream media has been brainwashing us to believe in 9/11 conspiracies, treating us all like 'sheeple.'"

9/11 Truthers praise Maher for "giving us the right drug for 9/11 Truth." Lines form at Ground Zero area drugstores.
(BNN - September 15, 2007 - New York City.)
Bill Maher's announcement last night that 9/11 Truthers should "...start asking your doctor if Paxil is right for you," caused a sensation at New York City hospitals late last night and early this morning.
"Suddenly, our ER started filling up with young, bedraggled twenty-somethings, all begging for prescriptions for Paxil," said, John Berliner, spokesperson for Bellevue Hospital. "They said it was unfair to keep them waiting for the "truth" till Monday when their own doctors' offices re-open - whatever the hell that means. We filled their prescriptions just to get rid of them."
In his "New Rules" section Maher said:
New Rule: Crazy people who still think the government brought down the Twin Towers in a controlled explosion have to stop pretending that I'm the one that's being naïve. How big a lunatic do you have to be to watch two giant airliners packed with jet fuel slam into buildings on live TV igniting a massive inferno that burned for two hours and then think, "Well, if you believe that was the cause?" Stop asking me to raise this ridiculous topic on this show and start asking your doctor if Paxil is right for you.Nico Haupt, spokesperson for the growing "no planer" faction of the 9/11 Truth Movement, said this was the sign he was waiting for. "Ve know dat drugs will show us die 9/11 truth. Ve just didn't know VICH drugs."
According to medical literature, Paxil is effective in relieving anxiety and symptoms associated with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, long considered by psychologists to be the foundation of the 9/11 Truth Movement and other societal disorders.
Ask to comment on the long line of 9/11 Truthers at his door, New York City pharmacist, Dirk Veersten, said, "Heh... whatever works to get them off the streets."

New Zogby Poll, bin Laden speech embarrass 9/11 Truth Movement. - (BNN - September 9, 2007 - New York City.)
Several days after a new Zogby Poll showed only 4.6% of likely voters believe "9/11 was an inside job" (MIHOP), and Osama Bin Laden praised 19 Arab hijackers for the 9/11 attacks, "Loose Change" video creator, Dylan Avery, issued a statement announcing the recall of all T-shirts with the saying, "9/11 Was An Inside Job." Part of Avery's statement:
"As much as it pains all of us in the 9/11 Truth Movement to face reality, we can no longer ignore that the vast majority of Americans, and even Osama bin Laden himself, believe 19 Arab cavemen were able to carry off the 9/11 attacks without help of the U.S. Government.
"Despite the massive evidence we have collected showing that pre-planted explosives were needed to collapse the World Trade Center towers, Americans were unable to grasp the laws of physics sufficiently to see the truth.
"Therefore, we have decided to abandon the reality that "9/11 was an inside job" in favor of the less elegant and less dramatic theory of LIHOP - that the Bush Administration let the attacks happen on purpose."
"We ask all Truthers to return their "9/11 Was An Inside Job" T-shirts for disposal. For those unwilling to abandon hope, Alex Jones has offered to modify the T-shirts to say "4.6% of Americans Believe 9/11 Was An Inside Job" for $12.95 plus shipping and handling. New York City and state residents, please add appropriate sales tax."
Asked what would be done with the returned T-shirts, Avery said they "will be sent to China for recycling."
For more information and shipping instructions please contact Dylan Avery at firstname.lastname@example.org or Alex Jones at email@example.com.

Shortage prompts training courses from Steven Jones.
(BNN - June 17, 2007 - Salt Lake City, UT) - Steven Jones will soon address the continuing shortage of qualified peer reviewers plaguing the 9/11 Truth Movement with a series of two-day training courses in becoming a Certified Peer Reviewer.
"My inability to find a single qualified peer reviewer prevents the full acceptance of my scientific papers as proof that 9/11 was an inside job," Jones announced on Friday. "Everyone I have submitted my papers to claims to be too busy. The shortage is felt throughout the 9/11 Truth Movement."
Starting on July 1, applicants may submit an application to Jones for courses leading to certification as a Certified Peer Reviewer (CPR). Courses will start on on Sat., July 21, and will begin every Saturday thereafter through October. Cost of the course is $125 and limited to 100 participants per course. Prospective students must have at least a high school diploma but there are no other eligibility requirements.
An advertising and marketing campaign will start on June 18 in major markets.
Jones believes he will have enough peer reviews by December 1 to blunt all critiques of his papers. "No one will be able to dismiss my scientific analysis anymore on the basis of not being peer reviewed. There will be enough qualified peer reviews to fill a box car."
For full information and application form contact Steven Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org.

YouTube and blogs enhance self-importance of 9/11 Truthers - "ego inflation" behind instant expertise of 9/11 Truth Movement.
(BNN - June 11, 2007 - San Diego, CA) - 9/11 conspiracy theorists believe that worldwide praise of their efforts proves they do not suffer from Narcissistic Personality Disorder or "ego inflation problems." Such is the reaction of leaders of the 9/11 Truth Movement to a recent study identifying an increase in narcissism in the younger generation.
As first reported by the Screw Loose Change blog in March 2007, a new psychological study, Egos inflating over time," found that narcissism levels are significantly higher in recent generations." The study has spawned analysis of 9/11 conspiracy theorists, identifying narcissism as the prime motivating force behind efforts of young 9/11 Truthers to gain the attention they crave.
"It is important to note that those in the 9/11 Truth Movement need to stand out in the crowd, to exert their 'rightful importance' in the world," says BNN health consultant, Dr. James T. Howard, Jr.
Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is characterized "...first and foremost by a positive and inflated view of the self, especially on agentic traits (e.g., power, importance, physical attractiveness... is associated with social extroversion, although narcissists have relatively little interest in forming warm, emotionally intimate bonds with others... involves a wide range of self-regulation efforts aimed at enhancing the self. These efforts can range from attention-seeking... taking credit from others... and opportunities to achieve public glory. Narcissists also lash out in aggression when they are rejected or insulted."
The study, which showed that "30% more college students showed elevated narcissism in 2006 compared to 1982," includes several patterns of narcissistic behavior characteristic of 9/11 conspiracy theorists:
- 51% said that becoming famous was among their generation's important goals.
- Websites such as MySpace and YouTube (whose slogan is "Broadcast yourself") permit self-promotion far beyond that allowed by traditional media.
- An analysis of teenagers' MMPI responses showed that in the 1950s, only 12% agreed with the statement "I am an important person." By the late 1980s, 80% agreed.
- From the 1960s to the 1990s, agreement with California Psychological Inventory items such as "I have often met people who were supposed to be experts who were no better than I...have increased."
- Teenagers' MMPI responses showed that in the 1950s, only 12% agreed with the statement "I am an important person." By the late 1980s, 80% agreed.
Illustrations of narcissism among the young generation of 9/11 conspiracy theorists include the famous debate in September, 2006, between "Loose Change" creators Dylan Avery and Jason Bermas and authors of the Popular Mechanics's stellar debunking of 9/11 conspiracy theories. Unable to withstand the rational rejection of his 9/11 conspiracy theories, Jason Bermas became increasingly arrogant and haughty believing himself to be a far better expert on structural engineering, physics, chemistry, and forensic science than the hundreds of experts that made up the NIST investigation. As the grandiose sense of his own abilities was crushed, Bermas repeatedly called the authors of "Debunking 9/11 Myths" liars.
Dr. Howard has followed 9/11 conspiracy theorists for four years, noting the case of William Rodriguez, the respected hero of 9/11, who led dozens of people to safety from the north tower of the World Trade Center before it collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001. Lately, many in some quarters have described Rodriguez as the "Fallen Angel" of 9/11.
"Fantasies about having exceptional power, attractiveness or success, a sense of belonging to an exclusive group of people who truly understand each other, expectations of special treatment, and haughty or arrogant behavior are some of the things we've seen in 9/11 conspiracy theorists."
In an uncharacteristic outburst, leading some to suspect ego-inflation issues, William Rodriquez stated in a recent blog entry:
"Many accused me of exploiting 9/11. I am 9/11!"
"I was there, I experience the event, I lost 200 friends, I formed a 9/11 victims group, went to congress to fight for them, part of many organizations dealing with the blueprint to avoid future emergencies, speak on the media all the time on different issues related to 9/11, pushing a senate hearing in June to deal with the First Responders issue and live it every day of my life, any doubts?"
The "Egos inflating over time" study concludes that, "Self-correction may occur, however, given a strong enough external force... if another Great Depression or world war struck, Americans might suddenly have to temper their narcissism."

Singlehandedly uncovers plot to raise oil prices, attack Iran.
(BNN - June 6, 2007 - Dubai, United Arab Emirates) - During a fund raising stop in Dubai on Wednesday, Dylan Avery accused the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration and the CIA of spawning Cyclone Gunu in a plot to disrupt Gulf oil shipments and cause destruction to Iran.
"'Gonu is moving in the expected direction and its center will be shifted from the Strait of Hormuz to the Iranian coast beginning this evening,' said Dr. Saad Al-Mehlafi, director general of the National Observation Center of Saudi Arabia’s Presidency for Meteorology and Environment (PME)."
"There has never been a cyclone in this part of the world," Avery said. "It is physically impossible as confirmed by David Ray Griffin. No one but NOAA with the CIA's chemtrail experience could pull off something on this scale. The Bush administration and oil companies will profit and hurt Iran in one climate attack. Global warming pales in comparison."
Arab News reports that "oil prices rose amid forecasts that the strongest storm to threaten the Arabian Peninsula in 60 years was barreling toward Iran."
Dylan Avery is traveling throughout the Arabian Peninsula seeking funds to finance his faltering third effort to change "the hearts and minds of the world's citizens" to accept 9/11 Truth.
The third revision of his film, "Loose Change," to correct staggering errors in fact and present a coherent, factual account of the 9/11 attacks, has run into "far more contradictions than we expected", Avery said.
Postponed for release until September, the third edition is titled, "Loose Change: The Final Solution."

Declare Vermont Republic home of 9/11 Truth Movement.
Carry "Little Green Book" at all times.
(BNN - June 4, 2007 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands) - Two Thousand buck naked 9/11 Truthers lined up for a photograph yesterday before embarking on a historic 3,000 mile journey to Vermont, U.S. to establish the first 9/11 Truth Movement colony. Photographed with backsides facing the camera symbolizing their contempt for the "corrupt American Empire", the 9/11 Truthers waved their copies of the "Little Green Book" chanting "Long Live the Republic of Vermont!"
The "Little Green Book" is the "Green Mountain Manifesto: Why and How Tiny Vermont Might Help Save America From Itself by Seceding from the Union."
Rob Williams, editor of Vermont Commons, a quarterly newspaper dedicated to secession, said the 9/11 Truth Movement represents the essence of what the U.S. once was. "The argument for secession is that the U.S. has become an empire that is essentially ungovernable — it's too big, it's too corrupt and it no longer serves the needs of its citizens. Congress and the executive branch are being run by the multinationals. We have electoral fraud, rampant corporate corruption, a culture of militarism and war."
"The Vermont secession movement shares the values and goals of the 9/11 Truth Movement," said Alex Floum, patriot behind the 9/11 Truth site, George Washington's Blog. "The Vermont Republic is the true home of 9/11 Truthers who recognize the core values of tuning in, turning on, and dropping out of the evil empire."
Vermonters for a Real 9/11 Investigation welcome all 9/11 Truth immigrants to the Vermont Republic.
The two thousand naked 9/11 Truthers leave Rotterdam Tuesday on the Carnival Cruise Line ship, "Fantasy Island."

(BNN - May 29, 2007 - Duluth, MN) - Cindy Sheehan, anti-war mom of a soldier killed in Iraq "for nothing", today left the anti-war movement.
Once a proud and courageous symbol of the fight to end the Iraq war, Sheehan was the Left's symbol of courage, moral authority, and the antiwar movement's Joan of Arc.
But no more. Cindy Sheehan has been shunned by her comrades on the Left. She came to realize that the anti-war left had been using her all along - and committed the mortal sin of saying so. Cindy Sheehan in her personal grief and torment was but a "useful idiot" to the Left, useful for the anti-war movement's political objectives.
"Yesterday she violated Rule One of nutroots politics as articulated by the Chairman himself: she undermined the Democratic Party.
"Twenty-four abusive hours later, on a day dedicated to honor people like her son, Mother Sheehan’s decided it’s time to pitch one last attention-getting fit and then take her absolute moral authority ball and go home," says Allahpundit
Many saw it coming.
"When a mother looses a son, preeminent in the psychology of grief is the emotion of anger and rage. This is the phenomenon that we are currently experiencing with Cindy Sheehan, a woman whose son died in Iraq, a mother in crisis being manipulated by political forces with little regard concerning her emotional health." This according to Robert R. Butterworth, Ph.D. a psychologist that specializes in trauma.
Dr. Butterworth feels that Ms. Sheehan is delaying the grieving process concerning her son and will be destitute when the media move on to the next story and she is forgotten and left alone.
Butterworth feels that in is unconscionable for political forces, regardless of their positions to take advantage of mothers who are grieving for their sons both for and against the Iraq war.
Jim Fetzer, once the darling of the 9/11 Truth Movement, saw it coming too. From his redoubt in Duluth, MN, Fetzer told reporters, "I feel Cindy's pain. I too was shunned, tossed aside by the 9/11 Truth Movement like so much raw pork."
Fetzer has been mercilessly attacked by 9/11 Truthers for looking at alternative theories about the 9/11 attacks. Fetzer is currently working with co-conspirator Dr. Judy Wood on the likelihood that the World Trade Center towers were destroyed by Star Wars Beam Weapons.
Ever since 9/11 Truther and jingoist Jon Gold attacked Fetzer as "a real porker", the attacks have increased.
"The reality is that this movement is tired of you. You do not speak anymore for this movement...," Jon Gold wrote Fetzer.
Fetzer says that media whores Dylan Avery, Jason Bermas, and Korey Rowe are next to be discarded from the 9/11 Truth Movement like plucked chickens .
"These kids are intoxicated with themselves, with celebrities, and with video games. They are clueless about the real world and believe the official 9/11 Truth Movement story is the holy grail and their ticket to God-knows-where.
"And they lip-sync on 'Loose Change' like Milli Vanilli."

Changes tune after Giuliani dissing and revelations of past racist remarks.
(BNN - May 26, 2007 - Lake Jackson, TX) - In an effort to revive his fledgling presidential bid, Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) has responded to charges of being a racist and in bed with the 9/11 Truth Movement.
In an impromptu interview with BNN correspondent Stone Farmcracker, Paul admits to being insensitive to racial minorities in the past. Some of the quotes uncovered:
"If you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be."I want apologize to anyone I may have offended, Paul said. I really should have referred to them as 'people of color' instead of 'black.'"
"Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5 percent of blacks have sensible political opinions, i.e. support the free market, individual liberty and the end of welfare and affirmative action."
"Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. laughingly calls the `criminal justice system,' I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal," Paul said.
...although "we are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational. Black men commit murders, rapes, robberies, muggings and burglaries all out of proportion to their numbers."
"We don't think a child of 13 should be held responsible as a man of 23. That's true for most people, but black males age 13 who have been raised on the streets and who have joined criminal gangs are as big, strong, tough, scary and culpable as any adult and should be treated as such."
Paul also responded to charges that he has been in bed with 9/11 Truthers and supporting 9/11 conspiracy theories claiming Bush was behind the attacks of 9/11.
I apologize for giving the impression that I in any way support 9/11 Truthers. I really meant to say I support 'people of difference.'"
"They've invited me to shut me up."
(BNN - May 26, 2007 - Istanbul, Turkey) - Noted 9/11 Conspiracist Alex Jones confirmed to BNN that he has been invited to the secretive annual Bilderberg Group meeting to be held in Istanbul, Turkey from May 31 to June 3.
The Bilderberg Group is a secretive organization of the world's most influential political and business leaders, all accused of controlling the world behind the scenes. No reporters are allowed nor are any reports issued.
"This year’s delegation will once again include all of the most important politicians, businessmen, central bankers, European Commissioners and executives of the western corporate press," reports Daniel Estulin who has chronicled the Bilderberg Groups' global conspiracy in many books.
Alex Jones, noted promoter of 9/11 and other conspiracy theories, has followed the Bilderberg group for years. In 2006, Canadian authorities detained him for 15 hours at the Canadian border. Jones is noted for "bullhorning" Bilderberg meetings.
Asked why a reporter dedicated to exposing the group's conspiracy to dominate the world would be invited, Jones said, "I think they invited me to shut me up."
Wouldn't the group fear Jones's reporting of the meeting's proceedings, BNN asked? "That depends on whether I can subvert its mind-control techniques. Look for a full report on Infowars.com on June 4 - or not."

Admits WTC 7 collapse time was at least twice as long.
(BNN - May 19, 2007 - New York, NY) - In the first candid admission on record by a 9/11 Truth Movement leader of being wrong, Steven Jones (above, left) admitted today that he and other 9/11 researchers "screwed up on the collapse time of WTC 7. We blew it."
For years, Jones and others have claimed that WTC 7 collapsed in 6.5 seconds, nearly free fall speed.
Jones's admission comes on the heels of a debate on the Rob Bishop show last night when Jason Bermas (above, right), one of the amateur filmmakers responsible for the film, "Loose Change", became flustered when the question of the WTC 7 collapse time came up. Bermas was confronted with the CBS video of the collapse of WTC 7 clearly showing it took over 13 seconds to collapse from beginning to end.
"That is a fantasy! I've looked at all the videos. WTC 7 collpased in 6.5 seconds, period!", Jason declared in a nervous voice.
Pat Curley, who participated in the debate last night and co-wrote with James Bennett the debunking of the film, "Loose Change", demonstrated conclusively that WTC 7 collapsed in over 13 seconds.
"The CBS video clearly shows that the East Penthouse collapsed first, followed by the West Penthouse and the rest of the structure. Between the beginning of the East Penthouse collapse and the beginning of the structure collapse, 7 seconds went by. The structure collapse then took an additional 6 - 7 seconds," Pat explained.
Bermas, visibly shaken, responded by completely dismissing the video evidence.
Pat pointed out that the 9/11 Truth Movement has inexplicably argued against its own controlled demolition theory for years.
"The CBS video demonstrates that internal collapses were taking place in WTC 7 before the entire structure fell. The 9/11 Truth Movement could have argued that bombs were going off inside of WTC 7 to weaken the structure so structure collapse could take place, just like internal explosives are set off to cause a structure collapse in real controlled demolitions. Instead, they adamantly argue that no internal collapse took place before the building collapsed. Isn't that strange?"
Responding to the overnight controversy, Steven Jones announced this morning that WTC 7 did indeed take over 13 seconds to collapse.
"We screwed up. We had never seen the CBS video when we claimed that it took WTC 7 6.5 seconds to collapse. We only relied on the street video that does not show the Penthouses. By the time we saw the CBS video, we had so much invested in the 6.5-second collapse time, we could not disappoint our supporters who were successfully using the 6.5 free fall time to push 9/11 Truth. We just ignored the evidence.
Asked how his revelation would affect 9/11 Truth, Jones said it would enhance and strengthen it.
Jones said, "There is no question that bombs went off in WTC 7 to weaken the internal structure before the building came down. That is obvious from the video and why it took over 13 seconds for WTC 7 to collapse."

(BNN - May 13, 2007 - Philadelphia, PA) - University of Pennsylvania psychology professor, Gerard Stilkins, is leading a group of university psychology professors in a six-month study of what he says is the "largest outbreak of apantophobia since the Middle Ages."
Apantophobia - the fear of answers - is largely unknown in educated populations but was common in history, most recently in Europe during the Bubonic Plague (Black Death) pandemic of 1347 - 1350.
Prof. Gerard Stilkins explained that apantophobia was common during the period of the Bubonic Plague when Church officials could not deliver on their promise to eliminate the disease and cure its victims.
"Strange religious sects appeared as the fearful looked for someone to blame for the pestilence, reflecting the lack of control one felt over one's own life. One sect, the Flagellants, pitifully flogged themselves in manic religious processions hoping to avoid any unpleasant answers as to the real cause of the plague. Research has since shown that Flagellants actually suffered from apantophobia."
Prof. Stilkins began to notice the signs of apantophobia in his students devoted to 9/11 Truth in late 2002. "These students were passionate in their cause, demanding answers to questions about the 9/11 attacks. I became curious when I noticed over the last several years that most of the questions had been answered reasonably and logically with specific evidence many times over. These students did not seem to notice and kept on asking the same questions over and over, blank stares on their faces. They had all of the characteristics of the Flagellants of the Middle Ages."
Apantophobia has many distinct characteristics, Prof. Stilkins explained.
- The sufferer can be of any age, sex, or race, but is predominantly young, male, and insecure.
- The sufferer needs a cause; the nature of the cause is irrelevant but must be large and impressive to the sufferer.
- Questions related to the cause are all-important, revered in a religious-like manner.
- The phobia is characterized by long time periods of obsessive question development to avoid thinking about answers.
- Questions that are answered are nervously challenged with another question or ignored completely.
- If the answer is ignored, the answer is the correct one.
- If the answer is challenged with another question, the answer is the correct one.
- In either case, the question is recycled for later use unless the question brings back unpleasant memories of the answer.
- If questioned, the sufferer takes it as a personal affront, and replies with a question in a distinctive haughty tone.
- Over the long term, the phobia leads to declining health and long periods of suffering in dark rooms or closets.
"Mass manic apantophobia has not been seen in modern times and it is disturbing to see the 9/11 Truth Movement made up exclusively of apantophobics," Prof Stilkins says.
"We are hopeful that immersion in knowledge, reason, and truth will relieve, if not eliminate, their suffering."

9/11 Truther claims spray-on flame retardants were "not needed" - lawsuit planned.
(BNN - May 6, 2007 - New York City) - Another lawsuit may be added to the a number already filed by members of the 9/11 Truth Movement against government agencies and businesses.
J. "Spanky" Sparkette today accused the New York Port Authority of a kickback scheme during the original construction of the World Trade Center Towers. Sparkette is New York Divisional Vice President of Communications for the 9/11 Truth Movement.
According to Sparkette spray-on flame retardants were used to coat floor trusses and other exposed steel beams when "it is a well known fact that fire cannot melt nor soften steel."
The final NIST report on the collapse of the World Trade Center towers attributed the impact forces of the 767s knocking off the flame retardants from the floor trusses as a significant cause of the trusses' weakening from fire and the towers' eventual collapses. Asbestos was banned from use in flame retardants in 1971 when the towers were still under construction, having reached the 64th floor. Other materials were substituted for the remaining floors.
"Why do you think they banned asbestos? Clearly, the Port Authority of New York was profiting from this blatant abuse of the public trust," Sparkette claimed.
A spokesperson for the Port Authority of New York expressed disbelief. "You mean these kooks think flame retardents have no purpose?"

Fetzer retaliates - calls Gold "a fat and jealous 9/11 conspiracy jingoist."
(BNN - April 27, 2007 - Philadelphia, PA) The 9/11 Truther wars took another turn for the worse today as open warfare developed between 9/11 Truth Movement leader Jim Fetzer and 9/11Blogger.com leader Jon Gold. An unsightly fight occurred as each attacked the other below their unseen belts.
Fetzer had innocently posted links to his recent debates with seasoned rationalist and undefeated anti-conspiracist, Mark Roberts, on Hardfire. Roberts easily trounced Fetzer on the facts but Fetzer was undaunted because, he says, "I made dozens and dozens of points."
Jon Gold immediately attacked Fetzer. "Did you accept money from our enemies to show the world how fat, undisciplined, and snotty the 9/11 Truth Movement looks? If you weren't such a porker more people would accept us for what we are."
Tension within the 9/11 Truth Movement has been developing for months as its 9/11 conspiracy theories have not resonated with an intelligent public. Fetzer has been on the outs with a great majority of 9/11 Truthers, all of whom are much thinner than Fetzer. 9/11Blogger.com has seen a steady decline in traffic reach over the last three months possibly because of Gold's weight according to 911Blogger.com insiders who wish to remain anonymous.
Fetzer accused Gold, "You are like most of those who post here: willing to take cheap shots from the comfort of your homes but unwilling to put away the beer and cheeseburgers."
Jon Gold and 9/11Blogger.com recently came under harsh criticism for trying to talk 9/11 victims' families into joining the 9/11 Conspiracy Movement.
Nico Haupt, a trim and swank leader of the 9/11 Truth Movement who has long led the "NO EATER" faction, was circumspect.
"I've long pleaded that being fat will not get us to 9/11 Truth. Fetzer and Gold continue to be under that incredibly silly illusion that cheeseburgers and fries are thinning. There's no hope for them."

(BNN - April 20, 2007) - Cleveland, OH) - "9/11 Idol" has inspired a new series of 9/11 Truth outreach programs, and the 9/11 Truth Movement today announced the first in its new summer series, "Discovering the 9/11 Truth Within You."
Spokesperson, Peach Park Doe, a recent immigrant, explained the purpose of the program series.
"Most people do not know that 9/11 Truth resides within themselves. This powerful series will show you the way to truly harness the power that no amount of scientific evidence can impede your 9/11 Truth goals as they unfold the unfathomable mysteries of karma and the patterns of nature that shape your destiny. You will learn to attract people who support your truth, and the secret to surround yourself with success and love, and learn timeless problem-solving tools and techniques that helps others find their own 9/11 Truth. Join us in the warm transformational sunshine of this first-ever Lake Erie PsychoTruth event."
Aging hippie and self-described "9/11 Truthie", James Fetzer, announced the first program in the series, a resurrection of Rowan and Martin's "Laugh In", the prime-time 1960's comedy-variety series credited for motivating the anti-war movement to end the Vietnam War in penetrating demonstrations of political skits and scathing political satire.
"It's been forty years - two generations - since Laugh In motivated the nation's youth as a "happening" to take war, hypocrisy, and fascist government power seriously and end the Vietnam War. Today's youth, the core of the 9/11 Truth Movement, has no idea of the power Laugh In had on their parents and grandparents to achieve justice and truth. We aim to do the same for the 9/11 Truth Movement."
Laugh In featured a series of skits, sight gags, jokes, outrageous behavior, and a young, scantily-clad Goldie Hawn to bring the message of truth and justice through laughs and satire to America's households every Sunday night.
Dr. Judy Wood and Steven Jones have signed up to the play the characters of Gladys and Tyrone, the dirty old man who slinked up to Gladys on a park bench to whisper dirty sweet nothings only to get whacked with a handbag.
Dr. Fetzer is looking for other committed 9/11 Truthers as actors. To sign up, contact Dr. Fetzer at email@example.com with "Flying Fickle Finger of Fate" in the subject line.
To inaugurate the series, Fetzer and the entire cast will float in a steel barge on famous Cuyahoga River - renowned for being the only river to suspiciously catch on fire repeatedly - to prove that fire cannot melt steel.

Scholars, 9/11 families "hurt" by NIST Final Report facts - demands for factual language change - "Correction of the WTC Report Would Serve a Useful Purpose."
(BNN - April 11, 2007 - New York, NY) - Buoyed by the national crucifiction of Don Imus to "raise awareness and sensitivity to 'hurtful' language," a group of 9/11 families and scholars has petitioned NIST to change the factual language of its report on the destruction of the World Trade Center complex.
"If NIST, through the WTC Report, has given inaccurate, unreliable information about the destruction of the WTC Towers, the implications would stretch across the entire architectural, political and social landscape," the petition reads.
Petitioners charged that NIST discriminated against "...detailed computer simulations using less severe damage estimates."
According to petitioners, Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice, the petition reveals appropriate sensitivity to NIST discriminatory factual conclusions:
"Requesters hereby request that NIST revise the WTC Report to remove any bias towards finding that the impact of jet airliners plus the resulting fires were the only cause of the collapse of the Twin Towers."
"Requesters hereby further request that NIST revise the WTC Report so that the scientific information presented therein is accurate and reliable in compliance with the 'objectivity' information quality standards for scientific information."
" Requesters further request that NIST revise the WTC Report so that the information presented therein is 'useful' in that it is 'helpful, beneficial, or serviceable to its intended users' in accordance with applicable information quality standards."
Taking a cue from the personal statements of Rutgers University female basketball team players in the Imus flap yesterday, petitioners included statements on how they were individually affected by "NIST’s Information Quality Standards Violations."
"Scholars are affected by the scientifically flawed WTC Report because it is a group actively engaged in researching the attacks of 9/11, and its research has been severely hindered by NIST’s publication of the WTC Report."
NIST issued a statement late Wednesday stating that "NIST has been careful to avoid any discrimatory factual language in its reports and no comment will be issued pending a detailed review of the language and meaning of the petition."

Nursing homes demand 9/11 Truth Movement leader Kevin Barrett step down from radio show – Al Sharpton demands media repeat racist, age-discriminatory remarks hourly to “get the nasty words out"– Media web sites race to post podcasts of offending broadcast – 9/11 Truthers afluff.
(BNN – April 9, 2007 – New York, NY) – Kevin Barrett’s remarks on his radio show last Wednesday might well have gone unnoticed except for the carefully trained ear of Al Sharpton and his supporters from nursing homes nationwide. For Sharpton, it was the last straw, calling Barrett’s remarks ‘racist’ and ‘diabolical.” He then played the controversial remarks from Barrett’s radio show.
Charges of Anti-Senilism have dogged the 9/11 Truth Movement for years.
Barrett remarked on his radio show in apparent nonchalance that, “…even if the 1,850,000 figure of nursing home beds is correct, which it very well may be, I have grown agnostic on that after studying the Big Lies of AANH and those *****pid **ue-**ired ****nies1 – I would still have to characterize the demographics of the aged as it is taught in the US as a hideously destructive myth.”
Sharpton responded forcefully, “This is not some unemployed actor like Michael Richards. This is an established figure, allowed to use the airwaves for age-related and racist remarks. He has fully discredited the young, middle-class honkies that make up the 9/11 Truth Movement.”
1Unlike mainstream media outlets, BNN does not repeat politically incorrect remarks that are the cause of the controversy on which we are reporting.

9-11 Visibility Project builds on success of American Idol.
(BNN - April 8, 2007 - Kansas City, MO) - Emanuel Sferios of the 9/11 Visibility Project announced today that the group has retained Dylan Avery as producer and host of "9/11 Idol", a new reality contest show to be aired on the Fox Network beginning on September 11, 2007.
"The format of American Idol is perfect to expose Americans to 9/11 Truth and further our goal of getting 9/11 Truth on TV," Sferios said in a press release.
"Judges will rotate during the first season. Along with Dylan Avery, we have asked Nico Haupt, Jim Hoffman, and Rick Siegel. We hope to find a prominent female 9/11 Truther to serve as a judge too. '9/11 Idol' is gender-neutral," Sferios emphasizied.
TV viewers will be able to vote for best 9/11 Conspiracy Theory from the comfort of their homes.
Amateur contestants from the ranks of 9/11 Truth Movement leaders will compete for the best 9/11 Conspiracy Theory. Jim Fetzer, Steven Jones, Dr. Judy Woods, David Ray Griffin, Kevin Barrett, Alex Jones, Paul Craig Roberts, and Rosie O'Donnell are well known amateurs expected to compete. Singing is optional.
"We do not advocate any particular 9/11 conspiracy theory," Sferios explained. "We want the American public to decide which theory seems the best."

(BNN - April 6,2007 - Salt Lake City, UT) - After Nancy Pelosi's first venture into international shuttle diplomacy failed miserably in Damascus, Syria, House aides have sought to steer Pelosi into "more productive diplomacy."
Pelosi's office has been in contact with aides of 9/11 Truth Movement antagonists, Jim Fetzer and Steven Jones.
Pelosi spokesperson, Anatov Petrovski, told BNN, "We expressed our interest in using our good offices in promoting peace between the Jewish and Mormon factions of the 9/11 Truth Movement."

(BNN- April 1, 2007 - Roxbury, Mass) - In this active and progressive Boston community the Campus Action Network held one of its nationwide series of "9/11 Town Meetings" to promote 9/11 Truth.
"Through active citizen participation, The Campus Action Network raises the important unanswered questions about 9/11 and encourages communities to question their government representatives about the events of 9/11," CAN's brochure states.
Five years after the tragedy of 9/11, some 9/11 Truth Community members question if the "Unaswered Questions" strategy is working.
Roxbury resident and activist George Washington Gray said,
We have many unanswered questions about 9/11 but we need to engage in active self-examination including questioning our "Unanswered Questions" strategy.Participants generally agreed that these unanswered questions should be answered before deciding if the "Unanswered Questions" strategy is working.
Is it working? Should we question our underlying questions? Are there answers that we have missed? How many unanswered questions are there?

(BNN - March 30, 2007 - Marina del Rey, California) - The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers today recommended the creation of the .911 Top Level domain suffix (sTLD) by a vote of 13-1.
"We believe the explosive growth in 911 conspiracy sites justifies this action," a press release said.
Nicholas Hauptmann, the lone dissenter, suspected government pressure to isolate 9/11 Truth groups. "The government wants to herd us all under the .911 domain. Then one day agents will just delete the .911 domain. We'll be finished."
A survey of national 9/11 Truth groups echoed Hauptmann's fears.
Comments on the JREF forum indicated True Skeptics' universal support for the ICANN recommendation.
"We're applying for our own domain," one commenter wrote. "We believe the most appropriate domain suffix for rational people against loony 9/11 conspiracy theories is '.NOT.'"

(A BNN Exclusive – March 29 – Évian-les-Bains, FRANCE) – The calm waters of Lake Geneva and the crisp air hinting at the early warmth of spring belied the hurricane brewing at the 73rd Annual Conference of the Société de Climatologie Européen (Society of European Climatology.) Former university physics professor, Dr. Steven E. Jones, had just announced a link between the attacks of 9/11 and global climate warming.
Dr. Jones, retired professor of physics at Brigham Young University and leading proponent of the theory that elements of the United States government “pre-planted explosives” causing the 9/11 destruction of the World Trade Center towers, was a last-minute addition to this prestigious conference, having replaced the ailing Luigi Paolo Sebastiani, University of Florence professor of Paleo-climate studies.
BNN was unable to determine how Dr. Jones, unknown in the field of climatology, secured a position as a speaker and panelist.
Dr. Jones was forced to retire from Bingham Young University late in 2006 over his paper, “Why Indeed Did the World Trade Center Buildings Completely Collapse?”, claiming that the World Trade Center towers were deliberately brought down by explosive demolition using Thermate, an incendiary compound. "BYU remains concerned that Dr. Jones' work on this topic has not been published in appropriate scientific venues," the university said.
Dr. Jones is known principally for his work in solar funnel cooking, Evidence for Christ's Visit in Ancient America, and cold fusion.
Not content with his lack of recognition in these fields, Jones embarked on a “…personal mission to find 9/11 Truth.”
At the late Monday morning session, “Chemical Contributions to Abrupt Climate Change”, Dr. Jones claimed the U.S. government set up a program in the late 1970s to “…induce climate change by the systematic covert spraying of sulfur dioxide and other chemicals from high-flying military and commercial aircraft — the so-called ‘chemtrails.’”
While “chemtrail” conspiracy theories have flourished on the Internet for years, scientists, aircraft manufacturers, airlines, and the government have dismissed chemtrail conspiracies outright as paranoid pseudo-science. Dr. Jones, however, added a new wrinkle.
The morning of September 11, 2001 was unusually clear and calm over most of the eastern USA. There was not a chemtrail anywhere to be seen. Why?Jones explained that he originally thought Thermate was responsible, the “smoking gun” for the presence of sulphur.
My metallurgical studies of the steel from the towers showed there was a rather mysterious sulfidation of that steel. What is the origin of this sulfur? No solid answer is given in any of the official reports. Why?
The evidence for the use of some variant of thermite such as sulfur-containing thermate in the destruction of the WTC Towers and building 7 is sufficiently compelling to warrant serious investigation.But Jones found his Thermate theory gained no traction within the 9/11 Truth Community. Former partner and current nemesis, James Fetzer, attacked Jones in November 2006:
Moreover, thermate increasingly appears to be an inadequate cause of the devastation of the complete World Trade Center…. His evidence of the use of thermate also seems to be undermined by the discovery that thermate appears to have been used to bring down what little remained after the towers went "poof"! But if that is the case, then its presence is explainable on grounds other than its use to destroy the Twin Towers and it too, as a framework for explaining the evidence, goes "poof"!Increasing isolated within the 9/11 Truth Community, Jones discarded the Thermate theory. Speaking to the annoyed and puzzled attendees at the climatology conference Jones revealed,
There were all these unanswered questions about the sulfur. I set out on a week-long “personal quest” in the Uinta Mountains for the answer. Why was there so much sulfur? On day three, the answer hit me – literally. I was bombarded with cool rain in a sudden mountain thunderstorm and while reveling in drinking the “holy water from the God of The Sky”, drinking and dancing, the answer came to me.As Steven Jones crossed his arms, raised his head, and stood proudly looking at the audience with the extreme confidence Europeans were all too familiar with, the conference broke for lunch.
It was the unmistakable taste of sulfur in the rainwater – acid rain. The connection was complete. Sulfate aerosols are the secret ingredient of chemtrails, sprayed by the government to mix with rain to create sulfuric acid and scatter light to trap heat. The sulfuric acid relentlessly eats at everything, including the steel and aluminum which made up the World Trade Center towers.
There was no chemtrail spraying on the morning of 9/11 so that the so-called "hijackers" would have a clear view of New York City from a distance.
So chemtrails are part of the government plot to control the world through Global Warming and destroy American infrastructure from within. 9/11 was the government’s first successful test. It knew the towers were sufficiently weakened by acid rain to stage a successful false-flag operation. I have discovered the “Unifying Theory of 9/11.”

Charges of conspiracies, disinfo campaigns, run rampant.
(BNN - March 25, 2007 - Chicago) - In a trend that began in late 2006, 9/11 Truth groups increasingly have come to fisticuffs over what constitutes "9/11 Truth". Since the very public split of Prof. Steven Jones and James Fetzer over why indeed did the World Trade Center buildings completely collapse, charges of deliberate disinfo campaigns and censorship by 9/11 truth sites dominate Internet discussion groups.
Jones reported that, "...by the end of 2006, a groundswell of awareness of the problem of misinformation became evident -- the increaslingly [sic] blatent [sic] assertionions [sic] of transparently unscientific claims by some high-profile individuals within that community."
James Fetzer countered, "the exploration of alternatives involving mini-nukes, directed-energy weapons, or even HAARP is a subject that should be very familiar to a physicist who has conducted research on or at facilities devoted to these subjects."
Such high-profile attacks between members of the 9/11 Truth Community have caused the 9/11 conspiracy devotees' natural instinct of suspicion of conspiracies and disinformation campaigns to mushroom.
"We do not know what to believe or whom to trust in the 9/11 Truth Movement," exclaims Sara Marshall of 911Blogger.com, a 9/11 Truth site specializing in 'alternative' 9/11 news. 'Trust, but Verify' no longer works for us. Neither does 'Impossible, but Plausible.' ... . We're fighting with every other 9/11 Truth group trying to protect 9/11 Truth from their lies and disinformation... There are even factions within 911Blogger.com fighting each other."
911Booger.com (not to be confused with 911Blogger.com) has received numerous complaints from 911Blogger.com members concerning the deletion of a link to yesterday's 911Booger.com breaking news about Steven Jones's appearance at a French climatology conference.
"The Fetzer faction at 911Blogger.com is clearly controlling the site," one member wrote.
Dr. Thomas Lipton, professor of psychology at the University of Calgary and foremost expert on the psychology of conspiracy theorists says this is nothing unusual but is a normal stage of conspiracy theorizing.
"I liken it to an extended grieving process normal people go through after the loss of a cherished loved one -- only in reverse. A 9/11 conspiracy theorist goes through this process:
Acceptance - the initial satisfaction that the one true 9/11 Truth has been found.
Depression - the realization that one's 9/11 Truth is not accepted as the only 9/11 Truth. Why can't others see the one true 9/11 Truth?
Bargaining - the effort to get one's 9/11 Truth accepted as the one true 9/11 Truth through alliances and compacts.
Anger - the realization that there are many conspiracies against one's own 9/11 Truth by others proclaiming 9/11 Truth, actually all lies. Retaliation is the only option, if only others would cooperate.
Denial - the final stage. Retaliation has been foiled at every turn. No one is capable of understanding 9/11 Truth as it really is.
Dr Lipton says the 9/11 Truth Community is currently in the Anger stage. Outright warfare is likely to develop between 9/11 Truth factions in the near future before things settle down into inevitable Denial.
"The 9/11 Truth Community provides a tremendous laboratory for psychologists to study paranoia and denial in real time," Dr. Lipton says. "There is a clamor for more funding of 9/11 Denial studies in many universities while the phenomenon is still alive."

(BNN – March 24, 2007 – Évian-les-Bains, FRANCE.) BNN French correspondent Alain Trenteseaux has learned that Steven Jones will reveal a new theory about the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers on Sept. 11, 2001 on Sunday, March 25, the last day of the 73rd Annual Conference of the Société de Climatologie Européen.
Jones's appearance at this prestigious conference has sparked controversy among participants. Joachim Wiedemann of Munich, Germany protested that Jones "...has no credentials as a climatologist. I have initiated a formal protest and have already 23 members to sign a petition demanding Jones be not allowed to address this conference."
Other participants dismiss the controversy. "Just because he is not an expert in climatology does not mean he does not have valid data," exclaimed Sylvie Bois from Reims, France. "Everyone's opinion should be respected."
BNN will continue to provide extensive coverage. A full report will be published early next week.

Anti-war protesters quit in disgust
(BNN – March 21, 2007 – Dallas, Texas) Tension escalated between the 9/11 Truth Movement and the anti-war Left Monday when 9/11 Truthers disrupted hundreds of anti-war protesters on the 4th anniversary of the start of the Iraq invasion, 9/11Blogger.com (not to be confused with this site, 911Booger.com), reported Wednesday under its headline, “Dallas brings 9-11 truth to end the war protest.”
Anti-war protest organizer, Duke Spencer, said, “…amid the majority of straight line anti-war protesters, was a small group of local 9-11 truth activists who represented the exploding 9-11 truth movement with signs, information, flyers, deception dollars and hundreds of free DVDs… It was appalling.”
Tension has been mounting for months as the Left increasingly criticized the nascent 9/11 Truth Movement as bizarre, disconnected, and “fruity.” Last November, Alexander Cockburn wrote in Counterpunch:
“Five years after the attacks, 9/11 conspiracism has now penetrated deep into the American left… Like mad Inquisitors, they pounce on imagined clues in documents and photos, torturing the data - as the old joke goes about economists -- till the data confess… 9/11 conspiracism stems from despair and political infantilism. There's no worthwhile energy to transfer from such kookery. It's like saying some lunatic shouting to himself on a street corner has the capacity to be a great orator.”
Chants of "9-11 was inside job!", could be heard as 9/11 Truthers crisscrossed through the crowd of anti-war protestors sporting masks and signs unknown in Texas till now, 911Blogger.com reported. Great orators were not to be found in this group.
The anti-war protest broke up before reaching it’s objective of staging a block party on the future Bush Presidential Library as protestors left in disgust and disappointment.
One angry protestor approached this BNN correspondent. “Everywhere we show up for planned anti-war protests these days these 9/11 conspiracy clowns show up to turn our show of principled solidarity into a sideshow circus. The last thing we need when ending our protest today at the Number One Clown’s future presidential library site is looking like bigger clowns than him!”

(BNN – March 16 – Mt. Pleasant, SC) Ed Haas, organizer of the long-scheduled “National 9/11 Debate” revealed in an exclusive interview with BNN the real reason for the cancellation of the debate.
“There is no question that it was a government conspiracy to prevent supporters of the “official story” from participating.”
Haas was organizer of the debate planned in mid-1996 and originally scheduled for September 16, 2006 but postponed until March 10,2007. “…it is now time for the nation to witness a fearless and thorough debate on 9/11 that publicly answers the questions and concerns of a troubled and divided nation. It’s time for The National 9/11 Debate™,” Hass wrote on his web site.
“…the 9/11 Commissioners, NIST scientists, and other key personnel responsible for the government’s non-sustainable account of what happened in the United States on September 11, 2001 all refuse to participate in the National 9/11 Debate that was originally scheduled for September 16, 2006.”
Haas suspected a conspiracy early on. “When I contacted 9/11 commissioners and NIST scientists, they all said they could not find seats on any airline. I checked all the major online discount reservation sites and there were plenty of seats available to Charleston SC from Washington….what a crock!”
NIST spokesperson, Edmund Toohey, told BNN that “government agencies are forbidden to fly with discount fares…all of the full-fare seats were sold out.” 9/11 Commission members said they could not find any government plane available for the dates needed. “All of the small private government jets were booked to Las Vegas, Branson, and Orlando.”
Hass said that this “is just more proof of the the government cover up of 9/11 complicity. No government official would ever show his face in Las Vegas or Branson.”
Hass says that he will not reschedule the debate. “The good news is that the Muckraker Report no longer believes that a debate is necessary….There really isn’t much to debate any longer.”

(BNN - March 5 - Phoenix, AZ) In another setback for the 9/11 Truth Movement, International Association of Holocaust Revisionists spokesperson Eric Williams slammed the 9/11 Truth Movement as "...revisionist amateurs who give 'denial' a bad name."
Williams, author of "The Puzzle of Auschwitz", recently infiltrated the 9-11 Accountability Conference in Chandler, Arizona, by becoming conference co-chair before abruptly resigning out of "...pure disgust." Williams claims he has "far more expertise to speak about 'denial', in whatever form it appears, than anyone in the 9/11 Truth Movement."
"They claim 'their mission was to find the truth and hold those responsible accountable,'" Williams said. "...the people who take apart the 9/11 Commission Report does not make them a 9/11 Denier... It takes years of research and practice."
"Holocaust revisionism has over 60 years of solid evidence behind it - the swimming pools... the lack of evidence of gas chambers... all documented. 9/11 Truth is barely five years old and these bozos can't even agree if planes, missiles, holograms, or 'star war beams' destroyed the World Trade Center."
Williams was circumspect. "History is written by the winners... those who are the losers get the bump wrap. I'm trying to expose that..."

Tension between major media outlets, the BBC and CNN, broke out into open warfare Friday over which network was responsible for the BBC 9/11 reporting anomaly.
Earlier this week, reports surfaced that BBC News correspondent Jane Standley had reported live on 9/11/2001 that building 7 had collapsed 23 minutes before it's actual collapse. Some 9/11 researchers suspect Tuesday's stock market plunge was a diversionary tactic by the BBC to cover up this story.
"This foreknowledge of the collapse of tower 7 is the smoking gun that finally broke the 'official story's back," reported 911Blogger.com. "9/11 was unusual enough, without BBC World being able to foretell the destiny of WTC 7," 9/11 researcher, Drakey said, claiming to be the first researcher to expose BBC's deception.
BBC denied any prior knowledge. "We're not part of a conspiracy," Richard Porter, BBC Head of News wrote. "CNN's chronology of events published at the time confirms they reported the building on fire..., Porter wrote, shifting responsibility to competitor, CNN.
"Of course, with hindsight we now know that our live shot showed the building still standing in the background. But again I point to that confusing and chaotic situation on the ground - the CNN reporter who had talked about the building "either collapsed or is collapsing" also had it clearly in shot behind him..."
CNN jumped the gun, 9/11 researchers claim.
On Thursday, CNN denied any responsibility. "It was Aaron Brown's first day on the job. He was green and wouldn't travel south of 42nd Street. Getting him to report from the top of Rockefeller Center, what with his acrophobia, was a federal case... Aaron relied on the Beeb... they had more info then we did."
The BBC filed papers in Federal Court late Friday suing CNN for copyright infringement. CNN filed papers suing the BBC for false reporting. Neither would comment on the lawsuits to this reporter.
9/11 Truth sites rejoiced at this windfall of "official media dissembling," accusing the Beeb of being part of the 9/11 conspiracy. "At this time Mr Porter is still ludicrously feigning ignorance and stupidity by suggesting that the BBC has been "accused of being in on the conspiracy," Steve Watson of Infowars.net writes.
Other 9/11 researchers suspect that two major events happening in the same week, the stock market plunge and the BBC controversy, could not be coincidence. "I smell perps at work," one said. "I think Rupert Murdoch is behind the whole week's events. Murdoch owns Fox Broadcasting. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that he wants to take out CNN and the BBC, and benefiting from a little profit-taking on the side."
Thursday, March 1, 2007
9/11 Scholar, Jim Fetzer, claimed today that Tuesday's stock market plunge was part of the government's plot to cover up its role in the attacks of 9/11.
"No stock market has ever collapsed after news of an increase in consumer confidence," Fetzer remarked in a hastily-called news conference. "Stock markets cannot crash from an increase in consumer confidence," he said.
The Conference Board reported Tuesday morning that the Consumer Price Index hit a five-and-a-half-year high. The Dow Jones Industrials closed at more than 400 points down for the day.
Former 9/11 Scholar collaborator, Prof. Stephen Jones, ousted from Fetzer's group earlier this year, criticized Fetzer's hasty announcement in a telephone interview with this reporter.
"Poppycock", Jones stated. "The CIA-controlled Consumer Price Index rise led to a classic demolition of stocks."
Both Fetzer and Jones agreed the government was responsible somehow.
