Comet-like Behaviour of WTC Debris
This may be evidence of super-heated gases escaping from the nuked debris. Which reminds me of this post I made three weeks back.

ETs Mucking with Latest Moon Probe?
NASA's moon-colliding probe LCROSS lost more than half its propellant late last week after a glitch caused it to repeatedly fire its thrusters to try to orient itself. But the spacecraft is still on track to complete its mission to slam into the moon's south pole in October.Thanks to AP for the link.
The Lunar CRater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) took off on 18 June and has been orbiting the Earth at about the moon's distance in preparation for a lunar collision on 9 October. NASA hopes the impact will excavate material from one of the moon's permanently shadowed craters, which could be rich in water that could supply future lunar outposts. (snip)
NASAs’s top technicians and engineers may not not fully understand what is causing technical difficulties with this particular project but many UFO researchers and enthusiasts have suspected that perhaps our alien brothers may be interfering with the mission and for good reason. The plan again is to plunge a 2 ton kinetic weapon into the dark side of the moon most likely in the area of where the alien moon bases have been reported by creditable former astronauts like Dr. Edgar Mitchell and a few others.

Fluorescent Green Smoke at Ground Zero on the Afternoon of 9/11
Valentin, an NYPD detective, got to Ground Zero on the afternoon of 9/11. "It looked like winter out, like dust devils all over the place," he said. He also recalled "seeing fluorescent green smoke, the most beautiful green you could see. It was really eerie."Thanks to AP for the link.
Health Care-- the Final Stand
So I am done. It is this fight, or nothing. We have been asked to put up with war crimes, because "moving forward" is the more conciliatory path. We have been asked to stomach the politicization of the highest offices in our system of justice, because investigating it would be divisive. Time and time again we have asked for nothing more than our government to enforce its own goddamned laws, or to take action against the worst and most corrupt abusers of its citizens, whether done by government or by balance sheet, and we have gotten between nothing and jack-squat in return. We have gotten worse than nothing: we have gotten corporate immunity for lawbreakers, we have gotten tacit approval of the methods of murdering thugs, we have set in stone the notion that there is absolutely no corporate fuckup so damaging to the economy of the entire nation that it would result in substantive regulatory restraints.
No more. This fight is the last and final test; whether or not our leaders are so corrupt as to be irredeemable should be easily gleanable by whether or not they are able to bring themselves to even try on this, the one fight that every last one of them has supposedly been saving their strength for. It is this or nothing, and I will be damn proud, at the end of it, to abandon those who have so completely abandoned us.

Cindy Sheehan Keeping It Real
After spending weeks dogging George W. Bush's presidential vacations, anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan is now trying to make life uncomfortable for President Barack Obama. (snip)
"The reason I am here is because ... even though the facade has changed in Washington DC, the policies are still the same," Sheehan told a handful of journalists, against a backdrop of her "Camp Casey" banner.
She told US peace activists to wake up and protest Obama's escalation of the war in Afghanistan, and complained that despite the president's anti-war stance, US troops remained in Iraq.
"We have to realize, it is not the president who is power, it is not the party that is in power it is the system that stays the same, no matter who is in charge."
"We are here to make the wars unpopular again," she said.

9/11 Truth-- Still Reason for Optimism
Now, to some extent, 9/11 "truth" is as dead as it ever was right now. But this is not because there is no popular sentiment, but because there is no major breakthrough to rally around.* But that could change in an instant. And people need to keep the faith, and spreading the word however they can.
I have written that the whole government is fundamentally corrupt, and we need a fresh start to get real justice and to really keep the evil away. And for that, I am pessimistic. A real revolution is too hard and people are still too comfortable with the status quo and afraid of major change (for various reasons, myself included).
But nonetheless, I still think there is much hope to change public awareness of 9/11 (and other conspiracies) and importantly to change the media.
*(No, I don't consider "thermite chips" in WTC dust to be a breakthrough!)

Swine Flu Warnings
Honestly, I would say just take normal precautions against getting sick. I doubt the vaccine is going to be anything major to worry about-- scientists have been making flu vaccines for many years and I see no reason to freak out over this one. I would only panic if they start having forced vaccinations, which I really doubt will happen.
I think I already had this bug earlier-- back in June. It was nasty, and I could see it killing people not in good health. Personally, I only tend to get the flu if I am rundown-- overly stressed and overly active for a long period. While it's fine to say to avoid stress and so forth, it's hard to avoid real life too.
But the bottom line is I don't think this is the "aporkalypse".
Retired police officer Mike Valentin has had four biopsies for a precancerous tumor in his throat and has to take 15 pills a day. He calls 9/11 America's Chernobyl.Thanks to AP for the link.
“The people that will die from illnesses will surpass the number of people that were killed on 9/11. I am talking about thousands, tens of thousands of people that will come down with cancers,” forecasts 9/11 first responder Valentin.
Valentin says he spent four months digging through debris at ground zero, after US officials announced the air was safe.
Valentin, the father of three, says he spends $15,000 a year on medication the government won’t cover and that the US leaders have turned their backs on the heroes they promised never to forget.
“Our families are not looking to put Mercedes Benz on the front yard. We’re not looking to take European trips,” says Valentin, “We’re looking to take care of our families when we die.”
With the time he has left, Mike Valentin vows to continue fighting for the compensation he believes 9/11 first responders deserve.
Valentin founded a 9/11 police foundation to help retired first responders in need of medical assistance – among them Patrick Triola who spent months searching the ground zero and then became a victim of kidney cancer.
During those days, Stephen Grossman’s son Robert was also aiding in rescue and recovery. He was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in 2006, at just 39 years old. Today, he remains in a coma.

Intel Versus Intel Tiffs: Distracting Us from Deeper Truths
A less obvious but more common example is reporter versus reporter-- e.g. Glenn Greenwald versus Joe Klein and Jeremy Scahill versus Chuck Todd. Their goal also is to distract from conspiracies like 9/11. See also Matt Taibbi's take on Tom Friedman-- but at least Taibbi is funny.
This is even more common in the conspiracy world, for instance the obvious and distracting bickering between 9/11 WTC thermite proponents and DEW proponents. Their goal is to distract from the nuclear destruction of the WTC.
I suspect even the publicized interaction between Aaron Russo and Nicholas Rockefeller was intel versus intel. Little doubt about Rockefeller, but typically the people who have special access to elite intel are also intel. Their goal was to distract from deeper truths about the PTB.

A "Poignant" Torture, with a Lovely Bouquet and a Cleansing Palette
There has been some confusion for years over what exactly “waterboarding” has meant in practice. Does it induce the sensation of drowning? Or does it actually replicate it? The differences between the two may seem academic, but the CIA inspector general report on torture says that the way the agency practiced waterboarding was different from the way U.S. troops were taught to endure it at Survival Evasion Resistance Escape (SERE) schools — and different from what the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel thought it was approving in mid-2002.As far as the supposed upcoming torture probe, what Feingold says:
OIG’s [Office of the Inspector General's] review of the videotapes revealed that the waterboard technique employed at [REDACTED] was different from the technique as described in the DoJ opinion and used in the SERE training. The difference was in the manner in which the detainee’s breathing was obstructed. At the SERE School and in the DoJ opinion, the subject’s airflow is disrupted by the firm application of a damp cloth over the air passages; the interrogator applies a small amount of water to the cloth in a controlled manner. By contest, the Agency interrogator [REDACTED] continuously applied large volumes of water to a cloth that covered the detainee’s mouth and nose. One of the psychologists/ interrogators acknowledged that the Agency’s use of the technique differed from that used in SERE training and explained that the Agency’s technique is different because it is “for real” and is more poignant and convincing.
"I applaud Attorney General Holder's decision to appoint a prosecutor to review the shocking violations of law that took place under the Bush administration. We cannot simply sweep these abuses under the rug. This investigation should not be limited to those who carried out interrogations or to whether the abuses they engaged in were officially sanctioned. The abuses that were officially sanctioned amounted to torture and those at the very top who authorized, ordered or sought to provide legal cover for them should be held accountable."
More on the torture report and upcoming probe here, here, here and here. The torture and abuse and lack of a proper investigation is still sickening, outrageous and dismaying.
Goals of the Elite?
Hollywood director and documentary film maker Aaron Russo has gone in-depth on the astounding admissions of Nick Rockefeller, who personally told him that the elite's ultimate goal was to create a microchipped population and that the war on terror was a hoax, Rockefeller having predicted an "event" that would trigger the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan eleven months before 9/11.OK, so some of this believable, but I think we need to be wary of disinfo as well. First, who exactly is "Nick Rockefeller" and how much do we trust him? Second, I don't quite get the "chip" thing, as we are already pretty well controlled and coded (social security number, etc) as it is. Besides the fact of the immense impracticality of getting everyone "chipped", I'm not sure what the chip adds. So the chip thing may well be disinfo or a joke. And it's important to think about what the true ultimate goal of the PTB is.
Rockefeller also told Russo that his family's foundation had created and bankrolled the women's liberation movement in order to destroy the family and that population reduction was a fundamental aim of the global elite. (snip)
"I used to say to him what's the point of all this," states Russo, "you have all the money in the world you need, you have all the power you need, what's the point, what's the end goal?" to which Rockefeller replied (paraphrasing), "The end goal is to get everybody chipped, to control the whole society, to have the bankers and the elite people control the world."(snip)
Russo states that Rockefeller told him, "Eleven months before 9/11 happened there was going to be an event and out of that event we were going to invade Afghanistan to run pipelines through the Caspian sea, we were going to invade Iraq to take over the oil fields and establish a base in the Middle East, and we'd go after Chavez in Venezuela."
Rockefeller also told Russo that he would see soldiers looking in caves in Afghanistan and Pakistan for Osama bin Laden and that there would be an "Endless war on terror where there's no real enemy and the whole thing is a giant hoax," so that "the government could take over the American people," according to Russo, who said that Rockefeller was cynically laughing and joking as he made the astounding prediction.
In a later conversation, Rockefeller asked Russo what he thought women's liberation was about. Russo's response that he thought it was about the right to work and receive equal pay as men, just as they had won the right to vote, caused Rockefeller to laughingly retort, "You're an idiot! Let me tell you what that was about, we the Rockefeller's funded that, we funded women's lib, we're the one's who got all of the newspapers and television - the Rockefeller Foundation."
Rockefeller told Russo of two primary reasons why the elite bankrolled women's lib, one because before women's lib the bankers couldn't tax half the population and two because it allowed them to get children in school at an earlier age, enabling them to be indoctrinated into accepting the state as the primary family, breaking up the traditional family model.
This revelation dovetails previous admissions on behalf of feminist pioneer Gloria Steinem that the CIA bankrolled Ms. Magazine as part of the same agenda of breaking up traditional family models.
Rockefeller was often keen to stress his idea that "the people have to be ruled" by an elite and that one of the tools of such power was population reduction, that there were "too many people in the world," and world population numbers should be reduced by at least half.
Third, I think population control IS important, and it can be done ethically. As things stand, there aren't enough resources for six billion people to have a high quality of living and for there to be some semblance of nature left. But the population can be managed without massive culling of humanity. Simply spreading the wealth better to poor people and better access to birth control and eliminating the Catholic church would go a long way towards managing the population.
Fourth, while it is possible that the woman's movement was a CIA deal, with some goal to destablilize the family, I still have a big problem with the idea that feminism is a bad thing. Women were very much subjugated before to men, and that clearly wasn't right. I think it is a great thing for women to get advanced degrees and have serious professions. It is ridiculous to think we should go back to the way it was in the 18th and 19th and early 20th centuries for women. The issue of child-rearing is complex, but I think the idea that daycares and schools somehow brainwash the kids to be slaves of the state is silly. There is no doubt that society could help families more with child-rearing, and have better maternity-leave policies and easier to access to good child-care. But the whole idea that the progress women have made over the last 100 years is an evil plot, it just sounds like dumb right-wing propaganda.
So, the 9/11 stuff here sounds believable, but the rest? I don't know.
150-200 More U.S. Bank Failures?
Granted, most of these are small banks, but these are eye-popping numbers-- and shows this financial crisis still has a ways to go. It's amazing things aren't worse.
There would seem to be some major consolidation going on, with the big banks eating up lots of the small local banks.
Except that, of course, it's the Repugs who are best at killing soldiers and old people-- and poor people, and brown people, and black people, etc.

The Shriveled Beam
The question might then become why isn't there other sign of heat in the gash? There are the strangely wilted floor panels-- and perhaps other things not visible in the picture. But the heat from the nuked WTC columns likely only had an effect over a very short distance.

Calley Apologizes for My Lai
William Calley, the former Army lieutenant convicted on 22 counts of murder in the infamous My Lai Massacre in Vietnam, publicly apologized for the first time this week while speaking in Columbus.
"There is not a day that goes by that I do not feel remorse for what happened that day in My Lai," Calley told members of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Columbus on Wednesday. His voice started to break when he added, "I feel remorse for the Vietnamese who were killed, for their families, for the American soldiers involved and their families. I am very sorry."
In March 1968, U.S. soldiers gunned down hundreds of civilians in the Vietnamese hamlet of My Lai. The Army at first denied, then downplayed the event, saying most of the dead were Vietcong. But in November 1969, journalist Seymour Hersh revealed what really happened and Calley was court martialed and convicted of murder.
This is a good time to revisit the Amazing Hugh Thompson Vietnam story.

In any case, I have to say in large measure, that I accomplished what I set out to do here when I started this blog-- which was try to find out what happened on 9/11. What I found is pretty wild and disturbing, but no one can say I haven't done the research and I don't have a lot of evidence to back up my views. And wow, have I learned a lot of things since in the past five years-- about human nature, about physics, about engineering, about writing, about the internet and about massive conspiracies. Some of it amazingly profound. Much of it profoundly disturbing.
Mostly though, it has been a simply great experience for me, and thanks to everyone who has come here and especially to those who have contributed something. I also want to give a special thanks to Anonymous Physicist, for his awesome insights in the past three years or so.

DNA Evidence Can Be Readily Faked
Tuesday, August 18, 2009
RIP Robert Novak
Why Fake A “Return” To The Moon, When You Can Fake a Voyage To Mars?
Recent “revelations” from the Regime claim that they might not go “back” to the Moon after all, due to lack of funds, or such. But I think the PTB (our Cosmic Criminal Creators)--if they cannot leave here with a massive escape attempt by Dec. 21, 2012-- might just decide to skip faking an Apollo Redux, and go with a “manned voyage to Mars.” A recent NASA administrator revealed NASA’s plans to send AstroNOTs to Mars by 2037.
So the logic may be to boldly fake what no one has faked before. (Some nice Mars voyage fakery here.)
Of course, some of us have demonstrated that there is something totally preventing this sham from occurring--the same thing that dictated that the Apollo Program was a laughable hoax. It is this overarching factor.
Putting 9/11 in Some Perspective
A 9/11 Every Two Months.Two thoughts-- 1) I imagine that the PTB that did 9/11 at some point intersect with the fuckers denying health coverage to all Americans. 2) While the point about deaths is accurate and appalling, 9/11 of course was more than just the deaths of 3000 Americans. It led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and Afghanis. It also led to massive expenditures on wars and "homeland security" measures, looting the public treasury.
That's what we have in America today in terms of the casualties caused by our corrupt insurance regime. About 18,000 deaths occur annually in America due to lack of health insurance. That's 1,500 deaths per month, or a casualty total equalling all of the casualties of September 11th, 2001, every two months.
The opponents of reforming this system have raised a stink over the last couple of weeks about fictitious "death panels", but the reality is that these people have formed their own national death panel. They are saying, quite plainly, to the uninsured: Go ahead and die. They're saying that they don't mind one bit if you die from a disease that could have been prevented. They're saying that they don't care that your condition could have been treated early and affordably. They're saying that they'd rather foot the free-rider costs, in the form of ever-increasing premiums, of your expensive, last-ditch treatment when you finally show up in an emergency room. They're saying to one sixth of their fellow Americans that they'd prefer all of this to reforms that would reduce costs and increase access.
They're openly applauding that health care expenditures continue to soar past their current level, fully one sixth of our national economy.
Opponents of reform are demanding the continuation of a status quo that sees 3,000 of their fellow Americans needlessly die on their home soil every two months.
The 9/11 scam and the healthcare scam-- probably both are comparable in ripping off Americans and denying them freedoms-- and both are outrageous.
Pentagon: Again I Ask...
what possible part of a American Airlines Boeing 757 is this? It looks more like a piece from a glider or small plane-- perhaps even part of a boat or toilet seat.
There are some white surfaces on an AA 757 (below)-- but this piece seems far too delicate to be a structural surface. Note also how the paint is incomplete or gently rubbed off from the lower side. Odd.

DEW Battle at Rendlesham
Conspiracy Theory Prediction Records
People like Alex Jones, who constantly cry that forced vaccinations, internment camps and martial law are coming, don't have such great track records either. Nor do the people who keep warning that some terror drill or the other is going to go live. I have always been very skeptical of those claims, I have to say.
Of course, people who have been wrong about these sorts of things can always say that by alerting the public, they averted those terrible things from happening.
More embarrassing are people who make claims about great spiritual awakenings, mass transformation, alien arrival or some combination of these three on a certain date-- and those days come, and nothing happens.
I've tended to make only fairly safe and obvious predictions-- like that there would never be any great sudden awakening about 9/11 (because the media won't allow it) but that most people will slowly realize what a scam it was in 20-30 years, like with the JFK assassination. And then nothing would happen because people would be too blase and busy with their lives to disrupt the system, and that the media would never promote it enough to get people riled up. I also predicted that Bush would lose in 2008 and hand over power peacefully, and there would be no major court fights about the election. That was kind of obvious to me, though plenty predicted Bush would not go quietly.
A more impressive prediction was Anonymous Physicist's prediction about the problems the Large Hadron Collider has had.
UPDATE" AP adds "When some like Jones cite martial law about to occur etc. from a govt Op going live, I think the following is really at play. Remember I think these people are intel assets posing as truthers or "warners." This aspect of their Op is precisely to cry "Fox" so many times, that the masses will ignore it when the last Op will go "critical". That is martial law, the Conc. Camps etc. really do open up, after everyone ignores such people's warnings because they were always off before."
Now What Does This Remind Me of....?
Note how flashes from the demolition charges are not visible at all, despite the overpowered charges that send wide-arcing debris trails.
UPDATE: AP adds "there's also no upward moving mushroom clouds, and no far-traveling, massive rising smoke full of nano-particles unlike the nuked WTC towers."

Cancer at Ground Zero: Toxins Versus Radiation, and Nuking
There are really only two plausible explanations for these cases of cancer:
1) toxic chemicals, such as benzene, produced by the burning debris/rubble pile
2) radiation from radionuclides leftover from the nuking of the WTC towers
The critical point here is that cancer is almost certainly due to radiation for the following logic:
a) people have been exposed to toxins such as benzene before, but don't develop cancer for ten to twenty years.
b) the ground zero workers developed these cancers in three to four years.
c) radiation can induce cancer in a short period of time.
Now one could argue that the toxin level at Ground Zero was so extreme that it caused cancer much more rapidly than normal. However, this really doesn't hold up for the following reasons:
i) high levels of toxins getting into someone's system are more likely to cause immediate acute systemic illness-- that should have been noted for these cancer victims if it occurred
ii) there must be many other cases of people being exposed to high levels of aerosol carcinogens, yet there is no clear connection of these toxins and rapid cancer development
iii) people who worked at ground zero for any extended period wore protective breathing equipment, which would have limited toxin exposure but would have done nothing for radiation exposure
Importantly, multiple myeloma is NOT the only suspicious cancer showing up in Ground Zero workers-- there is also
thyroid cancer, which is strongly linked to radiation exposure. There are also many blood cancers showing up in the workers.
Finally, note that even the toxins ultimately can be explained by the nuking. First, the power of the nuclear demolition fragmented and fried interior contents of the towers-- leading to immediate toxin production. Second, the China Syndrome of unextinguishable fires in the WTC rubble is due to the nukes-- and was also the source of toxin production.
Why Wouldn't Insurance Companies Cut Costs Exactly the Same Way?
Pressed on whether he himself believed the legislation calls for “death panels” to recommend hospice instead of treatment for the elderly, Giuliani said,By the way:“The only way in which you can save money the way the president and the House claims is by reducing care. So it is natural that some people would believe, particularly since they have these provisions for end-of-life decision-making councils, that it is natural that people would suggest that one of the ways you would do that is to cut off care for the elderly. Whether they will do that or not I don’t know. … People assume these Death Panels will be created.
There are no “end-of-life decision-making councils” in any of the legislation in Congress. The only end-of-life provisions is in the House bill and it would allow Medicare to pay doctors for voluntary counseling sessions that address end-of-life issues. Additionally, the Senate Finance Committee has ruled out any such provisions.Yeah, no could have ever predicted that the right would completely freak out over health care reform and make up all sorts of wild shit to scare the people away from it.

Going "Back" to the Moon: Not Gonna Happen
NASA doesn’t have nearly enough money to meet its goal of putting astronauts back on the moon by 2020 — and it may be the wrong place to go anyway. That’s one of the harsh messages emerging from a sweeping review of NASA’s human spaceflight program. (snip)Let's assume for a minute that we DID go to the moon for a second. Is this fucking pathetic, or what???????
The committee members will meet with administration officials Friday and are likely to say that under current funding, there’s no realistic way to get Americans back on the moon by 2020, which has been the goal since President George W. Bush signed off on the “Vision for Space Exploration” in 2004.
But of course, the real reason we ain't going to the moon, is because we ain't leaving this planet due to the quarantine that OTHERS have placed on us because of the evil PTB.

"The Curious Case of the Establishment Liberal: Condemning Torture, Condoning Mass Murder"
However the piece then evolves into a diatribe against the state that I only partially agree with.
The Outrageous Never-Ending Goldman-Sachs Scams
... large brokers and funds can buy and sell a stock for the same price and still make 0.5 cents. Do that a million times a day and the money adds up. Or maybe do it 8 billion times. It requires powerful computers, complicity of the exchanges (because the exchanges get paid a lot), and highly proximate computer connections. Literally, the need for speed is so important that to play this game you have to have your servers physically at the exchange. Across the river in New Jersey is too slow. Forget Texas or California. This is a game played out in microseconds.More on Goldman-Sachs and HFT here.
Scamming TARP and other outrageousness:
“During the week of the AIG bailout alone, Mr. Paulson and [Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd] Blankfein spoke two dozen times … far more frequently than Mr. Paulson did with other Wall Street executives,” the Times reports.
The revelation is sure to fuel further claims that the $700-billion Troubled Assets Relief Program, or TARP, passed by Congress last fall with the support of both major presidential candidates, Barack Obama and John McCain, was “gamed” by Paulson in order to help out his colleagues at Goldman — and preserve his own reputation, which he made as the bank’s CEO.
Paulson spoke with Goldman’s CEO in an official capacity a total of 26 times before the treasury secretary was granted an “ethics waiver” that allowed him to be in far closer contact with his former employer than would have otherwise been allowed, Reuters notes.
In the five days after Paulson received his “waiver,” on Sept. 16, 2008, he spoke with Goldman’s Blankfein another 24 times.
But Paulson may have done more than help his former employer get bailed out of bad debts — he may have helped orchestrate the demise of his former employer’s competitors.
“Indeed, Mr. Paulson helped decide the fates of a variety of financial companies, including two longtime Goldman rivals, Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, before his ethics waivers were granted,” the Times writes.

Getting Rich While Committing War Crimes
By the start of 2002, Dr. Mitchell was consulting with the C.I.A.’s Counterterrorist Center, whose director, Cofer Black, and chief operating officer, Jose A. Rodriguez Jr., were impressed by his combination of visceral toughness and psychological jargon. One person who heard some discussions said Dr. Mitchell gave the C.I.A. officials what they wanted to hear. In this person’s words, Dr. Mitchell suggested that interrogations required “a comparable level of fear and brutality to flying planes into buildings.”Uh, yeah.
The "Death Panel" Provision of the Health Care Reform Bill--

New Study of 9/11 Responders with Immune Cancer/Multiple Myeloma Helps Prove Radiation, and thus the Nuclear Destruction of the WTC
by The Anonymous Physicist
CBS news is reporting today that a new study, in the “Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine,” found that an abnormally high percentage of 9/11 responders fell ill to a specific immune system cancer called Multiple Myeloma (MM). The Journal Abstract is here. Note that the cut off date for finding these MM sufferers was Sept. 10, 2007.
Now the article states, “The researchers looked at 28,252 emergency responders who spent time amid ground zero dust and found eight cases of multiple myeloma.” But I will show how the PTB start a form of a cover-up, in the Journal article, as they try to cut the number of 9/11 MM sufferers in half. Note also that some 28,000 responders were looked at, while other sources have stated that there were over 40,000 responders in total. So some 30% of responders may be being excluded here.
The CBS piece states, “However, four of the people who fell ill were under age 45, and multiple myeloma is thought to be more rare among people of that age. Under normal circumstances, researchers would have expected to find only one case of the disease in that age group. Those four young multiple myeloma patients included one officer who was caught in the dust cloud on 9/11 and then spent months working long hours at the site. Another spent 111 days at the Staten Island landfill where the rubble was sifted. Two others had less exposure, working 12 and 14 days each in the pit and rubble pile.”
But note that the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation states that “more than 75% occur in people over the age of 70.” And we can safely conclude that 100% of the 9/11 responders were under 70. So it appears that the authors and subsequently the media may speciously be focusing on a split at the age of 45 when all eight--not four--cases are under age 70, and all eight should be focused upon. Note also that at least one responder who worked at the Staten Island landfill contracted MM. I have detailed how the trucks were washed down in strange ways that lead to the conclusion that the entire matter was one of desperately trying to lower radiation levels. See here. The MMRF website also has this on the causes of Multiple Myeloma. “The search for a cause has suggested possible associations between myeloma and a decline in the immune system, genetic factors, certain occupations, certain viruses, exposure to certain chemicals including Agent Orange, and exposure to radiation.” And it is not likely that any Agent Orange was in the rubble pile of the WTC. So this leaves us with radiation; and thus is another piece of evidence--if not proof--of what I have called the China Syndrome Aftermath (CSA) in the WTC rubble from the micro-nukes, used by the American regime, to destroy the WTC.
There is much in the literature about radiation exposure and cancer, including Multiple Myeloma. This article, on survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, concluded that “it is biologically reasonable that MM occurs as a result of exposure to radiation.” This ongoing study is attempting to link Multiple Myeloma to radiation exposure among Chernobyl responders. And here we see that a study has linked Multiple Myeloma to radiation exposure among workers at the Hanford, Los Alamos, Oak Ridge, and Savannah River nuclear facilities.
So it appears well established that nuclear (ionizing) radiation causes Multiple Myeloma. The thing to be aware of, and that I have repeatedly sited studies for, is that the data from Hiroshima and Nagasaki showed that the majority of cancer, and other immune diseases, took 20-50 years to reveal itself in studies. And as the current study, just released, has a cut-off date of just 6 years after 9/11/01, we may be seeing just the tip of the iceberg-- as my writings previously hypothesized. For more on these matters, see the China Syndrome Aftermath section of my book, “The Nuclear Destruction of the World Trade Center and The China Syndrome Aftermath” at http://www.anonymousphysicist.com.
Please individually get this crucial information--on the likely radiation-induced exposure to all 9/11 responders, from the small nuclear bombs used to destroy the WTC, by the American Gestapo regime--out to all surviving responders. Perhaps they, and their families, will be among the first to awaken and lead the revolt that the United States of Amerika so desperately needs to save itself, and the world, from the same fate that was perpetrated on the thousands in the WTC on 9/11, and the thousands of irradiated responders, as well as nearby New York City slumbering residents. AWAKE NOW.
Addendum by Spooked: Note this quote by the CBS article--
Several groups are studying New Yorkers exposed to toxic dust when the skyscrapers collapsed.That "something else" appears to be RADIATION!
To date, no study, including the one published Monday, has established a link between that dust and cancer, said Lorna Thorpe, a deputy commissioner and epidemiologist at New York City's health department.
The timing of the four cases examined by the team at Mount Sinai also raised questions about whether they are related to their work at ground zero, she said.
Most research on multiple myeloma indicates that it usually takes 10 to 20 years for someone to develop that cancer after an environmental exposure to a carcinogen.
In these cases, the cancers were diagnosed in as little as three to four years after the attacks, suggesting that something else caused the disease.

More Evidence Japan Was Ready to Surrender BEFORE the US Nuked Them
Interesting to note how this was only a few days before the Kennedy assassination-- which likely blotted out this quote from the public's mind pretty effectively.
Questions of the Day
Blackwater: Evil on the Par of the Powers That Be
claim that the company's owner, Erik Prince, may have murdered or facilitated the murder of individuals who were cooperating with federal authorities investigating the company. The former employee also alleges that Prince "views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe," and that Prince's companies "encouraged and rewarded the destruction of Iraqi life."... and we're still fucking paying these evil fucks.
In their testimony, both men also allege that Blackwater was smuggling weapons into Iraq. One of the men alleges that Prince turned a profit by transporting "illegal" or "unlawful" weapons into the country on Prince's private planes. They also charge that Prince and other Blackwater executives destroyed incriminating videos, emails and other documents and have intentionally deceived the US State Department and other federal agencies.
Speaking of Christian Crusaders, Jacques Chirac has confirmed Bush's bizarre Gog and Magog rationale for the Iraq war.

As Predicted by The Anonymous Physicist, the Large Hadron Collder Is Having Mysterious Problems
The biggest, most expensive physics machine in the world is riddled with thousands of bad electrical connections.
Many of the magnets meant to whiz high-energy subatomic particles around a 17-mile underground racetrack have mysteriously lost their ability to operate at high energies.
See here for the prediction.
Obama Worked for CIA Cover Operation Right After College
Note that Wiki reveals "In 1986, Business International [outed as a CIA front in the WIki piece] was acquired by The Economist Group in London, and eventually merged with The Economist Intelligence Unit."
This is an indication of what some Conspiracy Experts, (Skolnick, Anonymous Physicist) have proclaimed-- that American Intel agencies are (and always have been) controlled by London's MI6.
I Am Not Anti-Government
But really, is there anyone more clueless about health care reform than rank-and-file conservatives? Talk about willfully ignorant. The propaganda against this reform is just way too obvious, and too obviously funded by health insurers, conservatives who are only looking to stop progress for their own gain, and other bad actors. I'm tempted to just say that conservatives get what they deserve, if they succeed in ruining health care reform. But that would screw over lots of decent people who need insurance badly, people who aren't so ignorant.
The Democrats have a golden opportunity to do this thing, given their overwhelming advantage in Congress and control of the White House. The main problem right now is it still isn't clear what kind of reform the Democrat leadership is going for-- they have been painfully disorganized on this issue, not too surprisingly. But this is something that needs to be done, and now is the best time. I can only hope the Dems get their fucking act together because health care reform is a GOOD thing government can do.

8.6.1945-- Nuking Day
Also dropping of the bomb was approved by Truman, the 33rd president.
The bomb was dropped from the Enola Gay at an altitude of 32,330 feet.
About 140,000 people were killed by the bombing, the vast majority of them innocent civilians.
In remembrance of Hiroshima and New York City:

Panetta the Latest Mother-Fucking 9/11 Shill
CIA director and Democratic appointee Leon Panetta, in an article published Sunday, said Democrats must recognize that the “reality” of 9/11 is what drove the conduct of the George W. Bush administration in the months following September 11, 2001, which somehow should justify not looking into suspected crimes.
He added, in an apparent warning to the House Intelligence Committee, that “focusing on the past” could hurt the CIA’s core mission amid a climate of recriminations over its practices.

Sherman Skolnick Questioned the Official WTC Plane Story Back in October 2003
Various details analyzed and compiled by others, strongly support the view that the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City, on September 11, 2001, did not suddenly collapse shortly after something---an actual airplane, or a missile disguised with a hologram projection to simulate an airplane somehow hitting the Towers and each entire plane getting somehow swallowed up inside the buildings.
Yet, aviation and engineering experts seriously doubt that a huge airplane, wings and tail, could penetrate the buildings hitting heavy reinforced pillars and such. Some question: how come the huge wings and tail, from vibration and impact, did not fall off to the ground below? How come Fire Department experts, on their walkie-talkies, stated that they got high up in one of the buildings; that the fire they saw was not that bad; and that other firemen should bring up hoses because the fire could easily be brought under control. Yet, shortly after making such a report, the buildings got pulverized and collapsed all the way down.
Little Noted Facts About the Obama Birth Controversy
2) the key point of the story is that Obama is a British agent/spy
I do find it amazing how much traction the born in Kenya theory has gotten, without any proper context given. And you would think someone would have tracked down Skolnick's source.
One question is whether all the attention given to Obama's birth is some sort of psy-op. And of course, the media presents any conspiracy theory in a particularly lame, incomplete way-- which the wingnuts seem to lap up anyway.
As far as the vast majority of the rightwing bloggers covering this story, I can only infer that they are really dumb or are intel.

Sibel Edmonds: Bin Laden Was US Agent Right Up to 9/11
Second, like anyone who cares about this doesn't already know 9/11 was an inside job. Is this going to change anything?
Third, like Sibel Edmonds isn't a total limited hangout artist/intel agent.
Fourth, like, why didn't she say this years ago?
Fifth, like, could she have phrased it in a way that was more specific?
Sixth, what exactly is her source for this?
