9/11 Petition Revisited

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. ― Margaret Mead, anthropologist

We are continually faced with great opportunities which are brilliantly disguised as unsolvable problems. ― Margaret Mead

 I’m a Margaret Mead fan … around the world there are millions of people — they’re not active — who support our actions. ― Mick Harrison, Lawyers’ Committee litigator

This entry relates a moment in a University of Hartford auditorium in West Hartford on Sunday night.

“The law says that a grand jury has to leave no stone unturned in investigating evidence it has at hand and to go beyond,” said Mick Harrison, chief litigator for the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry. “They can do things we can’t do, to follow up.”

He was referring to a special grand jury or a federal grand jury that has been or will be impaneled by Geoffrey S. Berman, United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, to examine considerable evidence petitioners presented in April and July of 2018 related to the destruction of three World Trade Center skyscrapers on Sept. 11, 2001

For extensive background on the Petition to Report Federal Crimes to a Special Grand Jury Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3332(a), and the U.S. Attorney’s response, click HERE.

NOTE: The petition is not to be confused with the lawsuit The Lawyers’ Committee, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, and others filed on March 25, 2019, against the FBI and the Justice Department in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

2 Texts + 2 Emails

Hartford and West Hartford were triumphs Sunday for Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth and the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry — as well as for the 2019 Red Pill Expo at the XL Center and the University of Hartford, which provided platforms for them to get their word out.

This is a brief intro of what I hope to get across in the next few days.

From a text Sunday from Hartford: “It’s going well. … [Richard Gage] was fantastic and had 200 or so people cheering  — got a standing ovation.”

From a text that evening from West Hartford: “The talk will start late; people are still coming in — 50-plus so far in the auditorium.”

Sixty or 70 eventually got to the U of Hartford talk, where AE911Truth’s Gage was joined by attorneys Dave Meiswinkle and Mick Harrison of the Lawyers’ Committee. The three were (no surprise) at the top of their game, and the whole thing including edifying Q&A lasted until 11 p.m.

Harrison, who had driven some distance to get there, had this main concern when it was over: “Can you tell me how to find a restaurant? I’m starving.”

More to follow on the events in the Constitution State.

From two emails today:

* “I got back yesterday afternoon and immediately hit the sack.”

* “Problem with going away is that when you get how [sic] you spend so much time catching up.”

Wisc. Breakthroughs

Project Due Diligence of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth seems to be paying off.

For an article on the reception by professional engineers to PDD presentations in Green Bay and Waukesha, Wisconsin, click HERE.

The presentations focused on collapses of three World Trade Center skyscrapers on Sept. 11, 2001, and the failures of a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) report relied upon by the 9/11 Commission.

Gage and Meiswinkle

Two leaders of the 9/11 truth movement will be speaking at two venues in central New England this Sunday, June 9 — in Hartford and West Hartford, Connecticut.

At 8:30 a.m. Richard Gage of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth will speak at the XL Center in downtown Hartford on “Prosecuting 9/11: Scientific Evidence as the Foundation.”

At 7:30 p.m. Dave Meiswinkle of the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry will join Gage at Auerbach Auditorium in the University of Hartford’s Hillyer Hall at 200 Bloomfield Ave., West Hartford, for a discussion titled “9/11 Justice: From Scientific Evidence to Legal Action.” Details HERE and HERE.

Most recently this blog focused on them and the Lawyers’ Committee’s Mick Harrison and Bob McIlvaine for their lawsuit filed on March 25 in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against the FBI and the Department of Justice, and the news conference the four held afterward in front of the Newseum that got no “mainstream” media attention. More on that HERE and HERE.

The first of Gage’s two appearances is part of a three-day event in Hartford called the Red Pill Expo at the XL Center, located at 1 Civic Center Plaza.

‘9/11 Report’ Protest

On Dec. 16, 1773, a group called the Sons of Liberty set ablaze a shipment of the East India Company’s tea in Boston Harbor and threw chests of the tea into the harbor as part of growing resistance to what was seen as unfair taxation. A seminal event leading to the American Revolution, it was later known as the Boston Tea Party.*

On Dec. 16, 2006, others with a mission staged the Boston 9/11 Truth Tea Party** by throwing boxes representing cases of the 9/11 Commission Report*** into the same harbor in an effort to expose the many falsehoods of that report published two years earlier.

For a 10-minute video of the 2006 event, with statements by several participants, click HERE.

Narratives

Storytelling is part of life and this activity helps us make sense of the world, teaching us how to handle the hard days. Stories educate, inspire, and build relationships. — Glenice Robinson-Como

–   –   –

My friend Bruce, with whom I walked across Massachusetts in the spirit of 9/11 truth last spring, is a Unitarian. I’m an Episcopalian. He’s an engineer and a onetime college teacher of math and computer science. I’m a semi-retired journalist (the “semi” because of this blog).

Countless times during the walk from Provincetown to the New York State line, Bruce would tell strangers, “You can’t pulverize concrete,” much less iron and steel. Except, in the case of the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers and Building 7, “with pre-planted explosives and incendiaries of the kind sometimes described as military-grade.

David Ray Griffin knows this. He’s the author of Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11 (2006) and eight or ten other books about the crime of the century. Bruce lent me his copy of the 2006 Griffin book the last time we got together and had brunch. Griffin’s books are never reviewed in the pages of such hopeless defenders of the executive branch’s 9/11 narratives as the New York Times and the rest of the mainstream media and most of the less-than-mainstream media.

Here’s where the Glenice Robinson-Como quote (up top) comes in. Stories do inspire and help people “through the hard days.” However, when concocted oh-so-carefully by a government bent on instilling fear to wreak havoc around the world, and buttressed by a fearful and compliant media, storytelling becomes part of repression and death.

One reason the truth of the mass murders of that clear September day nearly 18 years ago has taken so long to gain traction is that the executive branch of the U.S. government has divided and conquored — and big business including the military contractors, organized labor, organized religion, and just about everything else that can be organized, has gone along.

That is ending.

The mainstream media are putting themselves out of business with their lies and coverups.

“… No matter what problems we face, God in heaven will show up and show out,” writes Robinson-Como.

As it happens, she was writing, HERE, about a chapter of the Book of Daniel dealing with Daniel’s restoration of sanity to the realm of King Nebuchadnezzar. But her reflexion pertains as well thousands of years after someone wrote that story.

‘We Expect to Win It’

A victory may be in sight.

Near the end of the “9/11 Media Tool Kit” referred to in the entry of two days ago, litigation director Mick Harrison of the Lawyers’ Committee, says about the lawsuit* filed March 25 against the FBI and the Justice Department:

“[A]s a lawyer, I expect to win it. You might be surprised…. Not every 9/11 litigation that’s been tried in the past for citizens has had success. This one I expect to win — and for a very simple reason: All this evidence we’re talking about is either in the hands of the FBI (which is true, I think, for five of the six categories), and the other category that Richard [Gage] mentioned they’ve acknowledged the work of the Architects & Engineers and their plan to review it.

“[A]ll we have to prove to win this case is that the evidence is 9/11-related, that the FBI knew about it, that the original 9/11 Commission did not consider it, and that the new [9/11 Review] Commission did not assess it.

“And I can tell you — you can read our complaint,* black and white, on all four of those points, on all seven of the counts. We should win on each one of these.

“So this is not a symbolic action. We expect to win it. We expect it to result in a new assessment of evidence to be given to Congress and then by doing that we expect the American public to be better informed.”

9/11 Media Tool Kit

On March 25 a group of plaintiffs sued the FBI and the Justice Department in federal court to have those two agencies supply to Congress considerable important evidence they have illegally withheld regarding the murderous attacks of September 11, 2001. (Congress in 2014 mandated that the two institutions release the evidence to it along with independent assessments of it, but they have refused and have not been called out on this refusal by the nation’s news media.)

Today, the Washington, D.C.-based Justice Integrity Project carried a comprehensive “tool kit” for anyone with the time and inclination to delve into the lawsuit and the 9/11 mass-murder mystery the plaintiffs aim to solve. Find it HERE.
