9.11 investigation

Direct Deception Dollar Action at A Store Near You

An observed direct action in the SF Bay Area against yet another corporate / government lie.
Direct Deception Dollar Action
Hands On Response to 'Popular Mechanics' Attack on 9/11 Truth Movement

In response to the recent attack on the 9/11 Movement by Popular Mechanics magazine, Deception Dollars have been seen being inserted into the March editions at news racks everywhere to educate readers about the real 9/11 scam. Coverage of the famous Deceptions Dollars was avoided in the PM article because the Dollars contain the more serious websites that question what really happened on 9/11. For example, incredibly, the article cites an Indymedia link to a posting on a 9/11 item as an example of a '9/11 website'.

The PM scam is debunked in an excellent and detailed article here:

Popular Mechanics Attacks Its "9/11 LIES" Straw Man
by Jim Hoffman
Version 1.2, February 9, 200

Other absurdly overt corporate media attempts to smear the 9/11 movement are outlined in another article here:

An Opening For Attackers

Initial on-the-ground research has shown that local SAFEWAY and WALGREENS stores appear to be primary distributors for Popular Mechanics magazines. Probably most all corporate supermarkets and drugstore chains carry it, since it seems to cater to NASCAR and SUV fans.

This sort of action could take place in your own neighborhood, at stores in walking distance from your home, to continue the flow of real information to bypass the Popular Mechanics cover-up. If you need Deception Dollars for personal use (naturally this posting would never advocate that you try a direct Deception Dollar action at home), you can order large numbers of Dollars here:

British equivalent? 18.Feb.2005 10:25


does anyone know if a similar 'educational tool' has been produced for the British market, and if so, where obtainable? Deception Dollar=Prevaricating Pound?

Even if the truth comes out-no-one will bother to punish them! 18.Feb.2005 10:40


As in Pearl Harbour, Tomkin Affair, USS Liberty,ect,when the evidence comes that it was a lie---no-one cares because the media is in charge.
WTC was demolished by explosives.Not one jew died in WTC bldg,that houses thousands daily.What more prove do we need.
The Democrats and republicans are working for Israel.I dare anyone to ask any-politician---"If Israel was behand the WTC--would USA still fund Israel?"

Good idea. Here's more. 18.Feb.2005 12:03


That's a brilliant idea, I hope more will do it.

But you don't need deception dollars, which cost $ to buy from the producers. They're clever though, and will always be picked up when laying in plain sight, for obvious reasons. Just type up a Word doc on your computer asking a few simple questions. Ie, in bold, "Was 9/11 an INSIDE JOB?" Paste in some little black/white pictures of the towers burning, and maybe the infamous Abu Garab pic of the hooded guy on the soap box with the electrodes; powerful images to catch peoples eyes, ala Deception Dollars. "Is the War on Terra a hoax?" Then provide some of the best 911-Truth urls, like 911research.wtc7.net, globalresearch.ca, fromthewilderness.com, snowshoefilms.com, septembereleventh.org, 911truthmovement.org. Just make a point of not dropping any of the "pod people" sites or their affiliates. Urge the reader to email the links to all their contacts if they found them enlightening. Optionally, if Peak Oil's your thing too, drop lifeaftertheoilcrash.net in there.

Provide the url for the full text of "The New Pearl Harbor":
(yes readers, email this link to your entire contact list and recommend they do likewise!)

Keep this doc short, easy to read. You can then paste it 2-3 times on page one of a given Word doc. Print as many copies as your paper/toner budget allows, then with 2-3 "flyers" per 8.5x11" copy, cut them into their final flyer size. Use color paper if you have some available, or white is fine.

Then go hit the news stands. Put a flyer just under the first page of the papers, or between the major sections, whether the papers are the NY Times, your city's weekly free rag, The Onion, whatever. Do so for the entire stack of papers in these news stands.

Alternatively, if you have a few deception dollars around, and a full color copy/printer, make copies of them, several per 8.5x11 page, cut them to size, and get busy as above. Making properly aligned 2-sided copies could be tricky so dont sweat it, one-sided will be fine to attract attention and propagate the good word.

Additionally/alternatively: Use the internet personals (match.com, matchmaker.com etc). These always have free trial periods for new profiles. Put up a bogus profile, ideally of a female (since they are most heavily browsed by horny male trolls (the majority of members) as well as curious females). Say a few light hearted things in this profile, but in the politics area, say you're into 911-Truth and provide the above urls. Profiles with a pic are browsed much more heavily so grab a pretty girl pic off the web somewhere (hotornot.com?) and submit it for this (free trial) profile.

This sort of grass roots, viral, person to person guerilla communication is all the 911 Truth Movement has, given the corporate media blackout.

Copying Deception Dollars 18.Feb.2005 19:14

Re the art of copying Deception Dollars (giving the DD producers the benefit of the doubt that they're not about profiting from 911 truth, but rather propagating the truth at no meaningful monetary loss):

go to  http://www.deceptiondollar.com Click on the various DD pics. With cursor over the picture of the DD, right-click--properties. A window opens with the properties of the pic, including an url which will end in '.jpg'
Highlight/copy the .jpg url. Paste it into your browser window, hit ENTER. A webpage will appear with just the .jpg of the DD.

From here there are many ways to proceed. Make a local copy of the .jpg and manipulate it in your photo editing software, then print. Or paste it into a Word doc as-is, make multiple images per page, and tool around this way and that so that you can ultimately print properly aligned 2-sided DDs on your color printer (most home users will be taking the one-sided copies made, and running them through their printer again, paper turned over, to print the other side of the DD to the other side of the paper, properly aligned.. however you finally manage that!). Then of course, cut your bills to size.

Point is, you don't need to buy these DDs from the producers, and risk getting into Ashcroft's TIA terrorist dbase via them tracking the internet/credit card transaction. You can make these DDs at home, and distribute them via whatever guerilla means your imagination can conjure up.

If everyone copied deception dollars they wouldn't be around anymore since those who created them wouldn't be able to afford to do it anymore.

But I always feel that activists who take on direct actions, or hunker down to dial for dollars on a weekday evening, or type up the meeting minutes all the time, are already doing us all a big favor . . . for free.

Deception Dollars 20.Feb.2005 13:40

We created the Deception Dollars to pass out at an anti-war rally/march. They were so easy to give away- we created more and more of them. The proceeds from their sale has gone into the big 9-11 consciousness raising events- like the premiere of Aftermath, the San Francisco International Inquiry into 9-11 and sending videos/dvds on 9-11 to communityaccess stations across the country.

It is cheaper and easier to buy them than it is to make copies of them- I know cause the first batch- just in green cost me $600 to make 10,000... and now we have them in four colors and printed 1,500,000 in our last run. We ask a $250 donation for 8,000- that is a bargain. 2000 for $75. and 100 for $5- imagine how much work and the cost of forging 100 of them.

if you are afraid of being in the Federal database, just do mail order. If you want to be sure your money goes to a good cause- write the check to-

This is what we are up to now-

For years, we have been trying to break the basic facts about 9-11 into the mainstream news. Marches, rallies, film screenings, educational events, the International inquiries into 9-11, radio programs, television programs, books, magazines, art, Deception Dollars, street theatre have all contributed to a raising of consciousness. Even the New York Times, the L.A. Times, and Congress are now forced to acknowledge that the Administration lied about what it knew, when. The White House is in panic mode, issuing new terrorist warnings, and hiring experts in terrorism, death squads, and repression to head up our Intelligence Agencies and Homeland Insecurity.

March 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, in and around San Francisco, we will be premiering "The 9-11 News Special You Never Saw- The Great Conspiracy" produced by Barrie Zwicker, the first mainstream journalist to deeply question the official story, and director of the Toronto International Inquiry into 9-11. The screenings will be followed by dialogues with Barrie Zwicker; author of 9-11 Synthetic Terror: Made in the USA, Webster G. Tarpley; Director of Project Censored, Peter Phillips; Investigative Reporter, musician, Michael Kane, the press and the public. I'm working hard to encourage the few "independent press outlets" to break the story and be applauded for championing truth and justice. Who in the press will come to which event remains to be seen.

Simply the process of organizing has helped me to see how much our movement has progressed. Our co-sponsors include- Veterans for Peace- Chapter 69, American Legion Post 315, Project Censored, KPFA, Pacifica Radio, Kepler's Books, Black Oak Books, Cody's Bookstore, City Lights Bookstore, Valencia Street Bookstore, Modern Times Books, The Raging Grannies, 911sharethetruth.com, www.911truth.org, www.deceptiondollar.com. The events will be benefits for the Northern California 9-11 Truth Alliance. The book stores have asked us which 9-11 books they ought to carry. The Pacifica website has a special category for 9-11 truth events on its calendar.

The Northern California 9-11 Truth Alliance is now a project of Agape Foundation; we have sent two delegates to represent us this weekend in St. Louis at the United for Peace and Justice national conference to support proposals which merge the 9-11 Truth Movement with the Peace and Justice Movement.

I hope that you will be heartened by this information and will pass it on. ( If you live in the Bay Area, we would appreciate help with passing out handbills, putting up posters, pressuring the press).
The art for the handbills for the event is posted at  http://www.deceptiondollar.com/TempArt/GreatConspiracy.htm .
Additional Bay Area 9-11 organizational and public events are posted at  http://www.communitycurrency.org/9-11.html#EVENTS

Last year our "Behind Every Terrorist- There is a Bush" comedy event was tremendously enjoyed and appreciated. A great comedian, Swami Beyondananda, has volunteered to offer a bit of comic relief, during the film breaks, to help people grasp the heavy message we are carrying. There is nothing quite so empowering, as humor, to help large numbers of people to overcome their fears and take action.

These should be fun, historic events. We realize that even if we make headlines on the local papers; we still will have a journey ahead to hold those responsible for 9-11 accountable. Please come if you can!!!!

Barrie Zwicker was the first mainstream television journalist to deeply examine the official 9-11 story; he was director of the Toronto International Citizens' Inquiry into 9-11. In the documentary, Zwicker analyzes the use of fear to unnerve the public and deconstructs the so-called "war on terror." He examines in depth the failure of the military on 9/11 and George Bush's highly inappropriate behavior on that day. He finds the 9/11 Commission Report to be a cover-up operation. Throughout the film, he analyzes the role of mainstream media in keeping the public misinformed.
