We ought to be grateful not for our eyes but for the ability to see. — Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right and a desire to know; but besides this, they have the right, an indisputable, unalienable, divine right to know that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge, I mean of the character and conduct of their rulers. — John Adams
On prisoners of darkness the sun begins to rise … — part of a song based on Luke 1:68-79

On the last day of the long Thanksgiving Day weekend in the United States, it is fitting to show my deep gratitude for those I can think of who have made the most difference in opening what public awareness there is so far of the carefully crafted and nurtured lies about the “terrorist” attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Here’s an alphabetical list: Christopher Bollyn, Richard Gage, David Ray Griffin, Mick Harrison, Barbara Honegger, Andrew Kreig, Bob and Helen McIlvane, David Meiswinkle, Mark Crispin Miller, James Perloff, Michael C. Rupert, Barrie Zwicker.
I’ll add a name or three as I recall others.
One that may be added soon is that of the British investigative reporter David Icke (pronounced Ike). Last night I started reading his new book, The Trigger: The Lie That Changed the World — Who Really Did It and Why, hours after a friend* lent me his copy. I’m on page 26 of nearly 900. The John Adams quote above starts off Chapter 2, titled “Rule by Psychopaths.”
I’m thankful for readers of this blog who learn from it and try to spread the word in a world seemingly controlled through mainstream and not-so-mainstream media whose mission includes screening out relevant information, to the point at which even the most conscientious of citizens are left in the dark on matters of utmost importance. These news organizations, the only ones left at this point, are called “gatekeepers” for their role in selecting out information or presenting it sparingly and in such a way that little sense can be made of it.
— Mark Channing Miller
