11 September, 2001. 17 years ago today. And a Tuesday, too. Our thoughts go out to all those who were, and still are, affected by the tragedy.
Like the death of JFK for an earlier generation, anyone who experienced that event knows exactly where they were when it happened.
I was living in an apartment in Bondi at the time. My housemate and I were watching ‘Hoop Dreams’, a doco about US kids trying to make their way to the NBA — the basketball big league in the US.
It was around 11pm on Tuesday evening. One of our friends called and told us to switch over to the news. I remember seeing vision of the Twin Towers, one of them with black smoke billowing from the top.
And the rest, as they say, is history…
That moment changed the world. Irrevocably. And the scars remain to this day. The US STILL has considerable troop numbers in Afghanistan. And the Middle East is STILL highly unstable.
The War on Terror, just like the War on Drugs, was never meant to succeed. It was just a pre-text.
After 17 years, there are still a number of highly troubling questions about the attacks on New York that haven’t been addressed.
Here are just a few questions about that fateful day that remain unanswered…
The unanswered questions about 9/11
Why were no military jets scrambled to intercept the aircraft? The first flight lost contact with air traffic controllers at 8.15am, 30 minutes before it hit the north tower.
The second flight veered off course at 8.42am, 21 minutes before it hit the south tower. And Flight 77 veered off course at 8.46am, nearly an hour before it hit the Pentagon.
Are we expected to believe that the greatest military force on earth couldn’t respond in the timeframes given?
And why did the Federal Aviation Administration destroy recordings of New York’s air traffic controllers on duty that day?
Why was there a big increase in put options bought on the two airlines involved, United Airlines and American Airlines, reinsurance companies Munich Re and AXA, and a surge in call options on weapons manufacturer Raytheon?
Put options are a bet on a falling share price while call options are a bet on a rising share price. That’s some coincidence, no?
If you want more unanswered questions, check this out. It’s tragically funny.
Things smell pretty fishy right about now. But the real stinker came later in the afternoon.
At 5:20pm, World Trade Centre (WTC) Building Seven collapsed. The official story is that this 47-story tower collapsed due to burning fires, which in turn resulted from the earlier collapse of the Twin Towers.
As many independent experts have said, if that was the case, it’s the first modern skyscraper in history to collapse perfectly from a fire. And if you watch WTC 7 come down, it looks very much like a controlled explosion. You can check it out, here.
If you’re still sceptical and like to believe that the US government had the public’s best interests at heart, then you might have even more trouble processing this next piece of information.
The mystery of the WTC 7
A number of news networks reported the collapse of WTC 7 before it had occurred! You can view the details of that here.
The BBC reported on the collapse around 25 minutes before it happened. How could that be?
Remember last week I told you about Operation Mockingbird? It was an alleged arrangement set up by the CIA in the 1950s to ensure the mainstream media (MSM) is on board with the narrative the Deep State want to promote. By and large, we only read about what they want us to hear.
On September 11 it would appear that there was a lot of communication between government agencies and the MSM. My guess is that someone stuffed up and sent the memo to the media about WTC 7 too early. How else could they report on it before it happened?
In 2008, the National Institute of Standards and Technology issued a report stating that science backed up the claim that WTC 7 collapsed due to fire. A year later, David Ray Griffin, an authority on the subject, debunked this view in his book, ‘The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7’.
A review of the book by Richard Gage, a member of the American Institute of Architects, stated:
‘“David Ray Griffin has provided a comprehensive dismantling of NIST’s theory about WTC 7, according to which it suffered global collapse because of ordinary building fires. Besides showing that NIST committed massive scientific fraud, Griffin also points out that NIST was able to complete its theory only by affirming a miracle: a steel-framed high-rise building coming down in free fall even though explosives had not been used to remove its columns.”’
Why was WTC 7 demolished? What was in there that was convenient to destroy that day?
I don’t know the answer to that. But the whole thing stinks. And the fact that the MSM didn’t, and aren’t, holding the government to account over these glaring questions gives you an idea of their complicity.
The message, dear reader, is this: Take what you read in the MSM with a very large grain of salt, especially when it comes to politics and matters of ‘national security’. Because more often than not, it’s the security of the government and the hordes of unelected parasites, feeding off the people, that are at stake, not yours.
The complicity of the MSM continues today. Take the bombshell contained in this article, published overnight. It shows the FBI and Department of Justice conspiring to damage Trump. If the shoe was on the other foot, this would be headline news around the world.
But not a peep of it from the mainstream press! Is that how a robust fourth estate is meant to function?
If this information continues to come out, the MSM will have to cover it. The implications for the markets could be huge.
Tomorrow, I’ll discuss what those implications could be, and the best way to consume the financial information you see through the MSM.
