911: A Decade of Deception

Ten Years later and there's still no wreckage on the Pentagon lawn..
it's time for Crocodile Tears
it's time for Crocodile Tears
and there's still no wreckage in Shanksvile. The planes were totally "vaporized" according to the "official" story. Titanium engines too. The Aleghany Co. coroner went home after five minutes. "No bodies or parts anywhere to be seen" he claimed. Same deal at the Pentagon- dogs found no body parts. Not to mention no plane debris either. Where's that 40 foot tail section anyway? The Emperor is still naked out on that Pentagon lawn. And Shanksville was debris-free too. Nothing there at all. An engine was found six miles away. The planes that struck in NYC were gray in color with no discernable markings and the undersides appear to be modified with some sort of bomb or missile- the famous "pod" that seems to shed a laser light on the towers just before impact. "Loose Change" is still the most downloaded film in internet history. It's in dozens of languages globally. Ten years later and the first responders are dying like mad from leukemia and other ground-zero pollutions they were told was safe. And they're not even invited to the 10 Year Aniversary ceremonies. So much for "America's Heroes". Instead we'll have America's traitors, including the king ghoul himself Rudolph Giuliani, pretending that they had nothing to do with the attacks. 10 Years later and they still can't tell you what brought down building seven, which no plane hit and fel at free-fall speed, an impossibility without controlled demolition at work. Just like the twin towers. Huge stel girders blasted hundreds of yards. Everything turning to owder before it ever hit the ground- including office furniture and computers- all DUST. Did they add Hydrogen to TNT and get a semi-nuclear efect strong enough to blast out the very basements and subway tunnels? High Tritium levels imediately afterward point in that direction, not to mention video evidence of below-ground explosions just prior to the collapse. Don't forget the wrecked lobbies. They try to say the WTC was hollow in the center and it just "pancaked" but this is a huge lie. Monstrous girders were the backbone iof that building, sunk in bedrock and 100 stories high. 47 running up and down each tower. It could withstand anything but all 47 came down in perfect 30 foot chunks just big enough to haul away in NYC sanitation trucks. And all the evidence was shipped to Asia as scrap metal! By America's Mayor no less. America's 911 karma is catching up with it fast. Until citizens realize what actually happened, and what sort of mega-evil has overtaken this land because of it, we'll stay on the road to totalitarianism. Watching Panetta and Bloomberg and GW Bush and Rumsfeld and Andy Card and all the rest play out this horrible 911 charade is an excercise in frustration. Warren Commssion, 911 Commission, it's all the same. 911 is like the Ides of March for America. After Caesar's murder the Republic died fast and The Empire arose in all it's bloody gory glory- 500 years of endless wars to defend borders & bellies grown way too large. The murder of JFK began the process and 911 reinforced the fascist blueprint for all time. I always thought humans could never really become like H.G. Well's 'Ewoks" in "The Time Machine", complete slaves to their cannibalistic subterrnean masters, willingly submitting to bondage and death. 911 has proved me wrong I guess. It's far beyond Well's & Orwell now.

We need to remember WHY 911 Truth must NEVER die.


Allan Sherman, 1973 whole2th@gmail.com

Regular rejection of the 9/11 information is explained in this 1973 excerpt from The Rape Of The A*P*E* by Allan Sherman:


From THE RAPE OF THE APE, BY Allen Sherman
Chicago, Playboy Press, 1973
Pps 56-59

I. Credibility

All Lies are designed to seem true. The expert liar carefully uses elements that seem probable and logical and are therefore easy to believe. On the other hand, The Truth is often illogical, wildly improbable and hard to explain.

Lies are more believable than the truth.

II. Reliability

The Truth is spontaneous, accidental, and unpredictable. Lies, however, can be planned in detail long in advance and are thus guaranteed to turn out as predicted.

Lies are more dependable than The Truth.

III. Economy

To be The Truth, an account of a given event must be completely accurate. This requires painstaking resourcefulness, expensive research, time-consuming attention to detail, complex logistics and thoroughness. In spite of all that, some people will believe it and others will not. A Lie will produce identical results without all the fuss and bother.

Lies are simpler than Truth: Lies cost less than Truth in time, money, and effort.

IV. Value

The Truth can be found anywhere; it belongs to anybody who finds it,
absolutely free. Lies are custom-made, often by experts, and the best ones are highly polished works of art.

Lies are worth more money than Truth. Have you ever heard of anyone bribing a witness to tell The Truth?

V. Respectability

A. Great fortunes have been made by selling Lies to the public. The people who sell these Lies are often grateful to the gullible customers, so they endow libraries and universities and cultural centers.

B. Nobody ever made a fortune selling The Truth. First of all, as already stated, The Truth is free. The only people who will pay money for The Truth are people who are being blackmailed--and they are only buying The Truth so they can hide it before anybody else sees it.

Lies lead to libraries and universities, while The Truth leads to blackmail.

VI. Stability

A. Take a thousand parts Truth, add one part Lie. Result: a lie.

B. Take one thousandth part lie, add one part Truth. Result: again a Lie.

C. Note that you can make a Lie out of Truth, but you can't make The Truth out of a Lie.

Lies are stronger and last longer than The Truth.

VII. Imagination

In reporting The Truth, a person must research the precise facts and stick to them exactly as they occurred. The liar can report the same incident without doing any research, merely saying whatever comes to mind and filling in details according to his fancy.

Lies are more creative than The Truth.

VIII. Recognizability

People are accustomed to hearing Lies all the time.

If you tell The Truth, people will think you are lying. If you convince
them you are telling The Truth, they will become suspicious. Why is he
suddenly telling The Truth? What is going on?

IX. Supply and Demand

A. In describing any given incident, only one version can possibly be The Truth, whereas the number of Lies possible is unlimited. Obviously, Lies are in far greater supply than The Truth.

B. There is a great demand for Lies, if they are flattering, if they build
up one's hopes, if they help one escape reality or if they promise health
wealth, power or potency. Nobody is very anxious to hear The Truth. The only people who demand The Truth are those who are investigating something (lawyers, etc.)--and they only want The Truth to prove someone is lying.

Lies are the acceptable medium of exchange in our society. They are in good supply and the demand for them remains strong. The Truth is in extremely short supply, but even this tiny supply far exceeds the demand. Thus, in our society, Truth occupies a position identical to that of dinosaur shit.


Lies are superior to Truth in numerous ways.
Lies are more ingenious;
Lies make the world seem more pleasant;
Lies are less embarrassing than Truth; and less frightening.
Furthermore, in such fields are diplomacy, statesmanship, merchandising, advertising, public relations and bookkeeping, The Truth is an out-and-out handicap.

In friendship, Truth is harmful; in love, it is disastrous.

My prediction is that The Truth will be phased out of our society, almost unnoticed, in less than a generation. It will become a curio like the two-dollar bill. Probably, there will be museums where samples of The Truth will be displayed for the benefit of curious children who want to know what it was like. One can only hope that the curators of these Truth Museums will have the good taste not to fake the exhibitions.

The Truth is that The Truth has become old-fashioned. It's full of odd
shaped little nooks and crannies, like so many old fashioned things, some people find them fascinating, but most people find them a pain in the neck. For those who care, it is a wonderful feeling to hold The Truth in your possession, to keep it and cherish it, never misuse it, then pass it along freely to anyone who wants it, giving it to them undamaged, unpainted, unadded to and unsubtracted from and every bit as glowingly alive as ever. To find all those joys in the handling of The Truth is a labor of love, but most of us in today's society have no time for such things.

WTF is it with the Rediscover911.com spam? 13.Sep.2011 17:38

Raises some serious questions...anyone know this Petros guy? That sounds REALLY weird if he was part of this group and Indymedia.

Subject: [pdx911truth] Contact Scientific American re: Controlled Demolition Article

Scientific American magazine is considering doing an article on WTC and
controlled demolition. Please contact them either by phone of by email
and encourage them to do this. Considering the amount of corporate
money in this magazine an article on CD would be cataclysmic on many
fronts. Please forward this to other 911 groups and contacts.




Hello David,
and friends within and around the 9/11 efforts for Truth and Justice,

That would indeed be good news - if Scientific American were to review its current position on 9/11 which is an embarrassment to Science. But where have you learned this? I looked everywhere online about whether the magazine has announced this but can not find the source.

Following below are a few thoughts triggered by your letter on why this subject matters, and on some elements of the "Bunk and Debunking Battles".

like to hear more about what that poster said him being one of these wackos but pretending not to be? or something?


yes 06.Sep.2011 19:03


yes yes Star Wars

crocodile tears, indeed 06.Sep.2011 19:54


I think i may have a self-imposed media black-out on the ten-year celebration of IXXI. I don't think i'll be able to stomach all the belly-aching, and hyper-nationalist/religious/terror-fetishing. Ten years of this bullshit, and it's all culminating in a crescendo of the foulest order.

I agree, Damos(A) 06.Sep.2011 21:10


It was bad enough the first time.

911 - Sacrifice to the Corporate Gods 06.Sep.2011 23:59

Humble Servent

Wait long enough and everybody will forget. Wait long enough and all the eyewitnesses and survivors will have died. Then rewrite it in Wikipedia anyway you want. The human sacrifice has been made. The Corporate gods have won! Bought-out congress. No constitution. No fight. No need for martial law. We kneel before and kiss the feet of our great Corporate gods who give us our daily bread, bring us transportation, oil, nuclear power, cell phones, mass media, and the internet! Hail Corporate Lords, without you we are nothing, without you to protect us we are scared, without you we are lonely, without you we will starve, and without you we will die! Have mercy on us! We hail the pantheon of the Corporate gods! Immortal, creators of our laws, thou who live heaven! Oh, Corporate gods we hail you!

@Damos(A) 07.Sep.2011 04:25

so true

fouler than most people can imagine


if its not a jingoistic pity party, then its a conspiracy convention serving nuts and flakes....

okay reread the op 07.Sep.2011 04:52

wtf r u saying?

that there was no plane or something? no wreckage on the Pentagon lawn? are u blind?


read this too  http://911review.com/errors/pentagon/nodebris.html

geez no wonder the "truth" movement can't get its shit together....

nuts & flakes? 07.Sep.2011 08:29

This is what we put up with. Neener politics. Nice "discussion".

but paper passports survive:  http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/august2004/230804visafound.htm

Makes you wonder why they needed passports in the first place, because there were no Arab names on any of the passenger lists.

the infamous cowling 07.Sep.2011 09:40

Rodentia Citizen

Ahhh- the infamous "cowling" You are saying THAT little piece of tin is the remains of a JUMBO JET? That's been identified as the "cowling" from an A-10 Skyhawk fighter jet by many experts over the years. The rest of the "debris" appears to have been scattered around by the fake "1st responders" milling all about trying to look busy but looking rather bored. Here's a photo for YOU. See the black smoke in your photo? The fire truck blocks the source. Here's the real source, a dumpster fire, flaming tires sending up all that black smoke. SFX all the way. What do you think of MY photo? And just where ARE those engines and tailsection anyway? Show me a pic of THAT.

forever unresolved 07.Sep.2011 11:18


The IXXI attacks can be debated from many different angles, from names on lists, to molten steel, to missles, empty planes, planted explosives, who knew what/when/where, etc. One thing that [for me] sticks out is Building no. 7. To this day, THIS has not been explained. There's some overly convuluted "explaination" on Building no.7's wiki page, that doesn't really tell you much.

Building no. 7 has been COMPLETELY RE-BUILT, btw; has been since 2006. Had no idea until last week. Huh. I don't seem to remember massive media coverage about it.

smoker 07.Sep.2011 12:22

hey hey

Building 7 IS the smoking gun

Neener politics? 07.Sep.2011 16:22


"so true" links to a couple of blogs whose sole purpose seems to be vilifying Portland truthers with lies, smears and childish blogs like  http://wolvesinsheepleclothing.blogspot.com/2011/09/new-updated-event-flier.html

The worst example is this hatchet job they're trying to get people to download  link to 4.bp.blogspot.com

For those of us who have worked tirelessly for 911 truth we know this is only the latest shill tactic to dismiss our questions as "nuts and flakes".


Rodentia has it right 07.Sep.2011 16:51


Wonder why its taking so long for him/her to reply? Maybe its the debunkers who need to "get their shit together".

It wasn't muslims 10.Sep.2011 08:59

Dr. Ed Kendrick whole2th@gmail.com

The Big Bamboozle was designed to demonize the muslim world in a classic "false flags" conspiracy.

http:ReDiscover911.com and a number of other websites identify Mossad/Israel as playing key roles in 9/11.

The mass media and Hollywood complicity in the cover-up indicate strongly a Jewish (crime network?) involvement. Before you get your pants in a twist, consider that talking about the Mafia is not a hate speech about all Italians.

The Mission Statement at ReDiscover911.com pretty much says what we feel is needed to be said about why we need to get to the WHO of 9/11.

rediscover911.com meet rediscover911.org 13.Sep.2011 17:39


The other cure for racist bullshit:


a guy 16.Sep.2011 11:35


Well "a guy"- you might be MOSSAD, no? and no thinking person believes Israel did 911 all by themselves anyway They don't control the USAF and NORAD, do they? (DO they?)

@ A RAT 17.Sep.2011 14:58

Why not answers instead of inuendo?

So "aguy" links to compelling information that rediscover911 is a racist front site(Did anyone else see that Tim Titrud guy listed as a contributor?) and that means he's Mossad? Are you out of your mind? Or maybe you are A RAT...how's that for innuendo?

Or you could address Rediscover911's disturbing content like an adult and explain why it isn't racist. But like Calvert and his closet fascist buddies you can't. Hey I've got more tinfoil for your conspiracy party; someone who used to go to Portland Truther meetings in 2008, swears a couple of members volunteered for Indy Media to try to keep their dirt off this site. Don't know if that's try, but wouldn't be surprised if they tried. Also wouldn't be surprised if they got caught by the real indy bees and bounced out. Makes you wonder though...how far the people saying they're NOT racists and closet Nazis will go to push their Tea Party friendly conspiracy bs....
[takes screencapture in case]

compelling propaganda 17.Sep.2011 23:29


It's compelling all right- compelling propaganda- and those jailed "hikers" in Iran- I guess they're not really MOSSAD either, huh? Rave on.....

worst? 17.Sep.2011 23:39


That link is SOOOOO obviously a MOSSAD site (false flag!)- It claims the worst 911 sites are infowars, Pilots for truth, We Are Change, Jim Fetzer and Alex Jones. All the sites that finger Israel as co-conspirator. Some of the best and most devoted 911 Truth sites in existence. There's my "PROOF" right there asshole. Watch 'em scramble like cornered mice as the TRUTH net closes in on the mass murderers of 911. The USAF and Israel did it. Treason all the way. And they try to pretend that they're a "truth" site themselves with some gratuitous nod to Architects & Engineers. How un-clever! Talk about desperation.....
