repressive regimes. Political dissent has been criminalized and purged in too many ‘banana republics’. For it to now take root in the United States is deplorable.

    Yet it has cropped up at law enforcement fusion centers (there’s no law against belief or political speech) in the leaked MIAC report and in the Federal government’s “mother” organization Homeland Security. Both hold veterans and peaceful political groups as potential “domestic terrorists”. Things have become so bad in this country that The People have become indistinguishable from “the enemy” to our civil servants and watchdog authorities. Many of these Federal government’s “mother” organization Homeland Security. Both hold veterans and peaceful political groups as potential “domestic terrorists”. Things have become so bad in this country that The People have become indistinguishable from “the enemy” to our civil servants and watchdog authorities. Many of these same groups were named in their report.

    White House “Czar” Cass Sunstein has even written policy papers which propose censoring and even penalizing conspiracy theories (outlawing a belief, i.e. thought crime) and even belief in the basic goodness of sunshine.

The loudest voice in the room in all of this has been Glenn Beck, who has mapped out the battlefield of supposedly violent, subversive “thought crime.” His mental map and belief system seems mired in a middle-ages Inquisition mindset.

    For Beck, it is a sinister plot held in the mind that centers over 9/11 truth beliefs. It has been the poison of the White House via Czar Van Jones’ alleged thought crime, it has been the poison of the Tea Parties, and it was the poison latent belief of candidate Debra Medina who was mired in doublethink and 9/11 controversy fallout. He has brazenly “predicted” coming violence from the wings of the Tea Party, from the midst of 9/11 truth and from the other ‘violent’ wings of the mind. Beck has even claimed that a 9/11 Truther will try to assassinate the President.

    If this random campaign is carried out by ‘violent minded’ 9/11 truthers and Tea Party racists, as the media smear would have us believe, how does Glenn Beck know so much about what’s going to happen? It’s all been on his chalkboard for months.


Consider a few incidents from the Bush era:

- A student asked John Kerry an uncomfortable question about his connection with Bush and Skull and Bones. He was unnecessarily tasered and arrested by police. The media chorus celebrated the use of force against an accused 9/11 truther engaging in free speech. A sensation was made out of his outburst ‘Don’t taze me bro!’

- A random “bombing” at Times Square was arbitrarily linked to 9/11 truthers and anti-war activists. The mainstream media smear agents cried out and demonized the wide and varied groups as “violent.”

- We Are Change member German “Gary” Talis was set up and charged with ‘attacking a girl in a wheelchair’ after loudly questioning two Bush women outside an event. Witness accounts confirm Talis’ story and he defeated the trumped up charges in court, but was smeared in the media and demonized as a senseless brute.

- The Simon Weisenthal Center accused Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth and its founder Richard Gage of being violent extremists. The group is comprised of professionals spouting nothing more controversial than Newton’s law of physics, but it’s come off as more controversial than Galileo in the time of the Holy Roman Empire. Galileo was condemned for “grave suspicion of heresy” due to his scientific explanation of the cosmos. You could say he lost the battle but won the war.

- During the 2008 Election season, pundits called for “tazing” 9/11 truthers who asked questions to candidates and Constitutional candidate Ron Paul, whose grassroots supporters worried the establishment, was demonized and smeared under the same tactics. One could say he lost the battle but won the war. I predict the same for Richard Gage.

    Now consider under the Obama-era, we have unconnected events that the establishment media has connected with terrorism, racism and truther-ism. The true nature of many of these events, at a minimum, is under question, but they amount to a hazy campaign of fear and possibly dirty tricks.
    The Holocaust museum shooting, Ft. Hood shooting, Underwear Bomber, Texas Capital gun firing, Joe Stack’s crash into the Austin IRS building, Pentagon shooting…

    Yet the political damage for these isolated events is painted against the typical targets, i.e. Van Jones, Debra Medina, anti-Federal Reserve activists, the Texas Gun Show, Tea Party, 9/11 Truthers, Veterans, Birthers, We Are Change, Oath Keepers, Chuck Baldwin, Ron Paul, Bob Barr, Constitution Party, and et al.

    But these are faces of a decentralized political movement challenging the status quo. There’s no connection to the acts of a few isolated individuals, and it’s unfair for Glenn Beck and others to insist on making that connection.

Proof that 9/11 Truthers

Are Dangerous

continued from Page 1

A number of intelligence officials, including a CIA Operations Officer who co-chaired a CIA multi-agency task force coordinating intelligence efforts among many intelligence and law enforcement agencies (Lynne Larkin) sent a joint letter to Congress expressing their concerns about “serious shortcomings,” “omissions,” and “major flaws” in the 9/11 Commission Report and offering their services for a new investigation (they were ignored)

  1. 20-year Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer, the second-ranking civilian in U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence, and former CIA clandestine services case officer (David Steele) stated that “9/11 was at a minimum allowed to happen as a pretext for war”, and it was probably an inside job (scroll down to Customer Review dated October 7, 2006).

A decorated 20-year CIA veteran, who Pulitzer-Prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh called “perhaps the best on-the-ground field officer in the Middle East”, and whose astounding career formed the script for the Academy Award winning motion picture Syriana (Robert Baer) said that “the evidence points at” 9/11 having had aspects of being an inside job.”

The Division Chief of the CIA’s Office of Soviet Affairs, who served as Senior Analyst from 1966 – 1990. He also served as Professor of International Security at the National War College from 1986 – 2004 (Melvin Goodman) said “The final [9/11 Commission] report is ultimately a coverup.”

Professor of History and International Relations, University of Maryland. Former Executive Assistant to the Director of the National Security Agency, former military attaché in China, with a 21-year career in U.S. Army Intelligence (Major John M. Newman, PhD, U.S. Army) questions the government’s version of the events of 9/11.

• According to the Co-Chair of the Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 and former Head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Bob Graham, an FBI informant had hosted and rented a room to two hijackers in 2000 and that, when the Inquiry sought to interview the informant, the FBI refused outright, and then hid him in an unknown location, and that a high-level FBI official stated these blocking maneuvers were undertaken under orders from the White House (confirmed here)

• Current Democratic U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy said “The two questions that the congress will not ask . . . is why did 9/11 happen on George Bush’s watch when he had clear warnings that it was going to happen? Why did they allow it to happen?”

• Current Republican Congressman Ron Paul calls for a new 9/11 investigation and states that “we see the [9/11] investigations that have been done so far as more or less cover-up and no real explanation of what went on”

  1. Current Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich hints that we aren’t being told the truth about 9/11

Current Republican Congressman Jason Chafetz says that we need to be vigilant and continue to investigate 9/11

• Former Democratic Senator Mike Gravel states that he supports a new 9/11 investigation and that we don’t know the truth about 9/11

  1. Former Republican Senator Lincoln Chaffee endorses a new 9/11 investigation

  2. Former U.S. Democratic Congressman Dan Hamburg says that the U.S. government “assisted” in the 9/11 attacks, stating that “I think there was a lot of help from the inside”

Former U.S. Republican Congressman and senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, and who served six years as the Chairman of the Military Research and Development Subcommittee Curt Weldon has shown that the U.S. tracked hijackers before 9/11, is open to hearing information about explosives in the Twin Towers, and is open to the possibility that 9/11 was an inside job
