    • Amen Brother, only Explosives could have Collapsed that Minorly discomforted Building….those could have stood for another 200years without a collapse….EVER, not a single floor woulda budged without the Black Ops Interation(whatever Covert TEams are Employed, nowadays, whatever)…At least their giving the people some thing to hate them For(FEDERAL, World Govt..)

      • Lemme see if I understand your theory, WuShuPorkyPie:

        Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld wanted to help out some friends at Halliburton, who could make more money if there was a war. So they decided to kill thousands of innocent Americans, and blame it on some other country, to start a war.

        So they assembled teams of hundreds of covert operatives, to do the deed. The interviews went something like this:

        Rummy: Hey, commando guy, can you keep a secret?
        Interviewee: Sure.
        Rummy: Promise?
        Interviewee: I promise.
        Rummy: Would you like to make a little extra dough by slaughtering millions of innocent American men, women & children?
        Interviewee #1: No problem, sign me up!
        Interviewee #2: No way!
        Rummy: Remember, you promised not to tell!

        Then they bought tons of of magical, silent, fireproof, airplane-collision-proof explosives & detonators for each building, explosives of a sort which to this day nobody has ever heard of.

        Then the commando guys crawled around the Twin Towers and WTC7 on 9-10-2001, planting bombs.

        And NOBODY saw them do it – they were THAT good. (And because 9/10/01 was a Sunday, and nobody in New York works on Sundays.)

        And they recruited a bunch of dumb Arabs to fly airliners into buildings, as distractions. (Those interviews were even more fun!)

        And the huge aviation-fuel-accelerated fires didn’t damage the magical, silent explosives and detonators, which worked perfectly when Cheney pushed the button on his remote detonator.

        And it all went off just exactly as they planned.

        They even managed to figure out in advance which floors the planes were going to hit on each of the Twin Towers, so they could plant the magic fireproof explosives on the right floors, so the buildings would collapse starting where the planes struck, to avoid suspicion.

        And they even managed to figure out in advance which one of the other surrounding buildings would be damaged and set ablaze by flaming debris from the Twin Towers, to provide cover for the subsequent controlled demolition destruction of THAT building, too.

        They really thought of everything!

        And they pulled it all off in just the 8.5 months they’d been in office, using government employees.

        And in the 12 years since, NONE of these hundreds of conspirators, nor any of the rejected interviewees, EVER had a pang of conscience and spilled the beans, because they pinky-promised to never tell, and pinky promises are sacred to black ops commandos.

        Dang, those government employees are REALLY good at what they do!

        But I just have one question for you, Porky.

        If U.S. government employees are THAT good, why they couldn’t even get a simple ObamaCare web site working with 2.5 years of work and hundreds of millions of dollars to spend?

        Do you think Bush Republicans are THAT much smarter than Obama Democrats?

      • Thanks! No blog, sorry. I do have a few web sites, though, like this one:

        I don’t know whether to blame the “9-11 Truther” phenomenon on the appalling failure of American public education, or the appalling success of deinstitutionalization.

        • I blame a lot on the failure of our education system. When i see people claiming the moon “doesn’t look right,” there’s a problem with the basics.

          I believe these misperceptions all start with the very nature of the human mind. Our brains have been hardwired by evolution to fear the unknown and to seek out patterns. Michael Shermer calls this Patternicity.

          Education enters the equation when we think we’ve spotted a pattern – a correlation between two events, but we’re unable to explain the causal relationship. Our brains can’t help but fill that void with something – anything – in order to maintain a perceived understanding of our world.

          When our ancient ancestors did a dance and it rained soon thereafter, they thought they saw a correlation between the dance and the rain, but they couldn’t explain the causal relationship. So they simply attributed it to a god of some kind. Michael Shermer calls this agenticity.

          Modern people still do the same thing. When people believe they see a correlation, but they are unable to explain the causal relationship, they instinctively backfill the void with modern day gods – governments, aliens, secret societies, etc.

          Education would alleviate these causal relationship voids or help people recognize that correlation does not always imply causation in the first place.

          Sorry for the long post. I’ve been writing all night and i just can’t stop.

      • Well, America used to lock up the nutcases in nuthouses. But the deinstitutionalization movement tries very hard to avoid that. If there’s any way to avoid institutionalizing a crazy person, they do (sometimes with the aid of medication).

        There are real benefits to deinstitutionalization. It maximizes individual liberty for crazy people. It might help reduce the “out-of-sight-out-of-mind” insensitivity of other people to the plight of the mentally ill. And it probably saves money, too, because nuthouses are expensive.

        But there are also some unfortunate side-effects of having more crazy people on the streets. Those side-effects include things like increased numbers of homeless people, “9-11 Truthers,” Alex Jones, Cynthia McKinney, etc.

    • Agreed. This website is loaded with bullshit. 9/11/01 was an inside job. Look further into the event, Illuminutti.com! You are deceived by the United States Government and the criminal cabal that runs it!

      • «This website is loaded with bullshit. 9/11/01 was an inside job. Look further into the event, Illuminutti.com! You are deceived by the United States Government and the criminal cabal that runs it!»

        You need to provide a little more evidence than just “i say it’s bullshit.” You’re word is meaningless. Facts. Get some facts.

    • As someone said on their facebook page. “When will these conspiracy tards realise that we have to trust the government and what they tell us?” And he meant it. You can’t argue with such a white out of belief that Pa and Ma are looking after them and always tell the truth. There’s so much evidence but, although most of them believe in their religious myths completely, they won’t believe anything that might rock their ‘safe little worlds’.

      • «As someone said on their facebook page. “When will these conspiracy tards realise that we have to trust the government and what they tell us?” »

        Aaaaaah yes, a conspiracist’s favorite friend – the straw man argument.

    • This guy see only conspiracies in these “Conspiracy Theorists” and not in our dear governements…
      it’s so sadly closed minded…and unfortunately is not the only one…this is very sad…so ego-normal people… so waste of energy…

      • «This guy see only conspiracies in these “Conspiracy Theorists” and not in our dear governements…»

        Gotta love the straw man. Where would you be without the straw man? Nobody said the government has never and will never engage in conspiracies.

  1. guys dont believe this bs for a second please watch the video the painful truth id like to see them try to disprove half that stuff

  2. Pingback: Was Alex Jones an alarmist 13 years ago or is he an alarmist today? « Illuminutti

  3. I’v e heard a lot of conspiracy theories about these 9/11 attacks. I even once heard that… some Muslims from the Middle East who were very p***ed of at the US hijacked some planes and flew them right into the side of the towers going 400 mph while half full of fuel, knowing full well that they would be killing themselves as well as a whole bunch of innocent people…

    Crazy, ain’t it.

    • That is some wacky crap right there!!! ROFLMAO! Who would believe such a thing??? I think it’s far more likely the government used CGI and a cloaking device (h/t: The Great Antagonizer) to make it look like the towers came down. Hijackers flying planes into buildings … *eyeroll* … *pffft* … typical conspiratorial nonsense. At least WE know better.

  6. Intro by Miles Johnston, Stressing the Dangers
    We All Face From the Enemy within
    Our Ranks
    December 20, 2012

    In the 3rd of 3 important interviews, this first section with Joanne Summerscales and Dr. Judy Wood & Andrew Johnson is a highly detailed feature on Wood’s book, Where Did The Towers Go? Viewers are advised to see the 1st two interviews to get the full benefit of this technical interview. (See below for the addresses of the previous videos).

    The 1st being Anne Hess’s interview at the Breakthrough Energy Conference, the 2nd being Bases 12 with Andrew Johnson, and this two section feature with “Ammach: On The Road.”

    Intro by Miles Johnston, stressing the dangers we all face from the enemy within our ranks.

    This video series is best viewed in the following order:

    1. http://www.forbiddenknowledgetv.com/page/21754.html

    2. http://www.forbiddenknowledgetv.com/page/21755.html

    3. http://www.forbiddenknowledgetv.com/page/21756.html

    4. http://www.forbiddenknowledgetv.com/page/21757.html

    Maybe?…..Just maybe? Don’t know …but it’s worth a look see….just sayin.

      • Judy Woods is someone who proposed that the World Trade Center towers were brought down not by explosives (as many 9/11 Truthers claim) or by the sheer impact of two 767′s, but by lasers from space!

      • Actually…if you watch the video’s I posted….especially the last one…she said no such thing! Someone else said that about her to discredit her work.
        If you know anything about Tesla and his experiments….this is what she is suggesting brought down the Towers….

    • The famous Doctor Judy …. whose only claim to engineering expertise is her groundbreaking work in designing dental appliances.

      Of course, anyone can see the direct relationship of designing false teeth to the structural dynamics of a collapsing skyscraper.

      No wonder the reptilian shapeshifting aliens tried to silence her by arranging for her incarceration in mental health facilities.

  7. The buildings that did collapse were of exoskeleton frame design and not constructed as are older more traditional buildings. I recall that the Empire State Building was hit by a USAF bomber and the building integrity was in tact. I do not care for any of the newer buildings. Windows that do not open, drop ceilings, carpeting instead of solid flooring. Then people complain about indoor air quality. The World Trade Center swayed in the wind and needed to flex.
    The concept of ordnance being used for a controlled demolition is rubbish. I bring it up only when I need to turn the tables of suspicion onto the government for their dealings in other matters that aren’t too good.
    Aircraft jet fuel heated the steel that was not properly insulated when the fire took place. Softened steel, high static weight load, no internal structural skeleton, all resulted in collapse. Collateral damage to surrounding structures are attributed to shockwave weakening those structures.
    Why any sane person wants to build higher than, ten feet lower, of any fire department ladder truck reach capabilities, is beyond me. I always used to ask, then find out for myself, where the fire department ladder company is located before I traveled and booked a room, then confirmed the reach of the ladder. Once I was told only the 16th floor was available but not to worry because they had a “100 foot” ladder company. They did not. I went someplace else nearby and stayed on the second floor. I used to be a volunteer fireman and this stood in my head. I always think of egress in pitch black conditions, from experience on my hands and knees. People that work in those buildings have no thinking capabilities of egress, and the construction methods I do not care for.
    No demolition charges were used or found. Caring thoughts of many, but not substantiated, ever.

    • The bomber (actually Army Air Corps in 1945, not USAF) was relatively tiny compared to a loaded 757, and it was traveling slow — barely above stall speed, lost in the fog & looking for LaGuardia.

      I did a quick & dirty calculation once, comparing the weights & speeds, and came up with a rough estimate that the 757 impact at high speed carried over FIFTY TIMES the impact energy of that little B-25 Mitchell.

      The Empire State, unlike the steel Erector-set skeleton design of the Towers, is a reinforced-concrete structure with far more resistance to impact and, especially, to fire. Even then, one of the engines penetrated through the Empire State and landed on another nearby building.

      • For some reason, this reply never made it into my email, but all the same, EXCELLENT! There will be differences. The important fact, is that you, were capable of obtaining facts, and based upon facts, present an intelligent statement.

        Both my son and one of my son-in-laws were at the towers helping people right after it happened, both are in news clips. I found out that all of the “demolition” crap and setting charges nonsense, are attributed to LIUNA (Laborers International Union North America) Local-78, located on Fulton Street (#140?) on the sixth floor above the McDonalds, had an asbestos abatement and ventilation duct clean up, and their crews were the last hard hats seen leaving. I went to Local-78 and spoke to them, they are real good people.

        1945: US Army Air Force. They transitioned from US Army Air Corp by then.
        Great pick up on details. Exactly, what I am talking about. You are not ranting, but stating facts.

  8. An interesting video – but it really doesn’t cover the WTC collapse :

    Where are the exploisions in the basement ?

    Where is the molten steel pouring from the buildings ?

    What about the nanothermite and thermitic residues ?

    Were these buildings designed to withstand the impact of a Boeing 707, as were buildings 1 & 2 of the WTC ?


  9. … and Pennsylvania and Pentagon and building 7 and no airforce and detonations and 4 flyrouts out of radar and Silbersteins decision and insurancemoney and hijackers alive and Israelis filming and all evidence sold to China and media knew building 7 in advance and confiscation of Pentagonfilms and how concrete buildings without steelbeams collapse and so on.

  10. This video is a joke, these shoddy concrete buildings, what type of building is the method used for? Are any steel framed high rises? NO! WTC 7 would be the largest building in 33 states, these are lo rent apt buildings. Even if your comparing this demolition system to a collapse that occurred do to fire, it only proves the demolition theory even more, every single support has to be removed simultaneously to accomplish a free fall collapse, or are you going to argue that it wasn’t a free fall collapse? Like the NIST did, until they realized that anyone with a stopwatch and a calculator could prove them wrong. Either way, this completely does not come close to proving anything. I’m sorry but to think that this event occurred as the official narrative says, is laughable at best. The author has clearly dug a whole so deep, and inset this debunking narrative so far into his own personal ideology that he will die before he admits he is wrong, just like older people and JFK, or dozens of other conspiracy theories that come to be proven true. Since you or I don’t truly know definitively what happened just fess up to the remote possibility that this was not the first and only time a steel frame building collapsed into its own footprint, neatly. The idea that WTC 7, that fire weakened steel causing gravitational collapse occurred without help from anyone is an insult to the profession of controlled demolition.

        • You mean the nut jobs that represent less than 1% of all the Architects and Engineers in this country?

          Even the American Institute of Architects want nothing to do with Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

          Scott Frank, head of media relations for the American Institute of Architects, said of Richard Gage and his organization (Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth), “We don’t have any relationship with his organization whatsoever.”

          The accusations of Gage’s organization are the typical hodgepodge of pseudo-scientific claims. Along with other esoteric and debunked technical arguments, he says that melted steel was visible at the Ground Zero site proving that the fires burned too hot to have been caused by jet fuel; that because the buildings collapsed at “near free fall speed” there must have been a controlled demolition; and that traces of a thermitereaction found in the World Trade Center debris proves that explosives were used.

          All of Gage’s so-called evidence has been rebutted in peer-reviewed papers, by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, by the National Institute for Standards and Technology, by the American Society of Civil Engineers, by the 9/11 Commission Report, and, perhaps most memorably, by the 110-year-old engineering journal Popular Mechanics.

      • MIB wrote, “You mean the nut jobs that represent less than 1% of all the Architects and Engineers in this country?”

        It’s actually much less than 0.05%, MIB. There are estimated to be more than 2 million practicing engineers in the USA, alone, plus many more who are retired.

        Plus, of course, there are a lot more than that in the rest of the world (note that “Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth” does not limit their membership to just the USA).

        For comparison, the prevalence of schizophrenia in the USA is estimated to be about 1.1% of the adult population. If there are ~3 million practicing & retired engineers and architects in America, there should be about 33,000 schizophrenic engineers & architects. That means there should be plenty of opportunity for growth for “Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.”

  11. Could you provide links to the “peer reviewed papers” you cite that have debunked 9/11 claims. Each paper specifically.

    Furthermore, NIST did not test for explosives nor did the report explain what happened once the towers began to collapse. That seems like pretty poor science to me.
