Jenkins misleads by linking Pentagon plane impact theory to AE911Truth

What really happened at the Pentagon on 9/11? The “debate” in the 9/11 Truth Movement seems to not be completely on the level when it comes to the Pentagon. Craig McKee’s Truth And Shadows Blog is no place to push unsubstantiated BS, or lame excuses for outright suppression of competing views. This becomes very clear when one reads these articles about what happened in the 9/11 Truth movement about what happened at the Pentagon on 9/11/01. Highly Recommended Reading!

Cab Driver Involved In 9/11 Pentagon Attack Admits “It Was Planned” VERY INTERESTING!! (14:53) Published on Feb 1, 2012 at hiptothedig YouTube Channel. Video #82 in the “9/11 & Other False Flag Investigations Playlist at Truth Troubadour YouTube Channel. https://youtu.be/kvyQ0vVwjqc?list=PLr2ybDdOumY7mIry7UZYzFeTfnS-J_F93

The taxi driver claims a light pole smashed into the windshield of his car, damaging only the windshield. Despite his claim that part of the pole was laying across the hood of his car but left no scratches or marks in the paint or metal. The interview starts out a little slow getting to the point, but watch his whole interview and you’ll start scratching your head at what this guy is claiming. The real kicker is what he says at the end (11:58), that “it was planned.” This is a snippet of an excellent documentary titled “National Security Alert – 9/11 Pentagon Attack” featuring eyewitness accounts (which includes D.C. Police Officers and city employees) that contradict the “official” version version of events by testifying that the approach of a jet plane was on the north side of the CITGO Gas Station, which is not the path that would account for 5 fallen light poles being hit by a plane.

More absurd arguments on the Pentagon: ‘propaganda team’ sets its sights on Griffin 7-16-12 by Craig McKee in Truth And Shadows Blog: “In Chapter 7 of David Ray Griffin’s most recent book, 9/11 Ten Years Later: When State Crimes Against Democracy Succeed, Griffin makes a strong case for no plane impact and shows how weak the positions of Chandler, Legge, Cole, and Hoffmann really are…” http://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/2012/07/16/more-absurd-arguments-on-the-pentagon-propaganda-team-sets-its-sights-on-griffin

Comment by Craig McKee at Truth and Shadows July 17, 2012 Blog, “David Ray Griffin, Barrie Zwicker Support CIT’s ‘Staged Evidence’ Scenario”: Here’s what Griffin wrote on page 265 of “Debunking 9/11 Debunking” about the witness accounts compiled by CIT: “This testimony, besides throwing into doubt the testimony of Don Mason and the other people who claimed to have seen the light poles clipped, suggests something even more important: that the five light poles were staged to provide evidence for the official story. If so, then we must suspect that other evidence for the official story was also planted. If any of the evidence is demonstrably planted, in fact, we must doubt the truth of the entire story.” There it is. https://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/?s=This+testimony%2C+besides+throwing+into+doubt+the+testimony+of+Don+Mason+

Pentagon debates expose emptiness of large-plane-impact scenario by Craig McKee in, Truth and Shadows Blog March 16, 2016 http://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/2016/03/16/pentagon-debates

Excerpt: “Those who are determined to push the impossible claim that a large plane really did hit the Pentagon on 9/11 – despite the absence of a plane at the “crash” site – go to incredible lengths to try and make their case. They speculate, hypothesize, assume, and concoct imaginative and “plausible” scenarios that they claim “fit the data” or are “consistent with an impact”… Two of those articles were critiques of presentations given by researchers David Chandler and Ken Jenkins at the 9/11 film festival held in Oakland, CA. in September (2015 and posted to YouTube as “Pentagon Plane Puzzle”). Both presentations were part of a continuing effort by a small team of researchers to get the 9/11 Truth Movement to abandon some of the most powerful evidence that exists that 9/11 was an inside job…”

Jenkins misleads by linking Pentagon plane impact theory to AE911Truth October 19, 2015 By Craig McKee in his Truth & Shadows Blog http://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/2015/10/19/credibility-of-ae911truth-co-opted-to-push-pentagon-plane-impact

“Festival organizer Ken Jenkins—who along with Chandler wants the rest of the Truth Movement to believe a large plane actually hit the Pentagon as the official story claims—tried in his brief talk to link his Team’s Pentagon theory with the widely supported position advanced by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth that the World Trade Center towers were brought down in controlled demolitions. If you liked controlled demolition, you’ll love a large plane hitting the Pentagon! It was six minutes of pure spin and cleverly worded manipulation.”

Going full debunker: Chandler devotes most of Pentagon talk to boosting 9/11 official story

http://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/2015/10/03/chandler-goes-debunker

Comment by Craig McKee at Truth and Shadows July 17, 2012 Blog, “David Ray Griffin, Barrie Zwicker Support CIT’s ‘Staged Evidence’ Scenario”: Here’s what Griffin wrote on page 265 of “Debunking 9/11 Debunking” about the witness accounts compiled by CIT: “This testimony, besides throwing into doubt the testimony of Don Mason and the other people who claimed to have seen the light poles clipped, suggests something even more important: that the five light poles were staged to provide evidence for the official story.

Excerpt: “A group of supposed truthers has done everything possible to discredit CIT, defending the official story to a bizarre degree. They mock and ridicule anyone who doesn’t agree with them, calling them “liars” and “no-planer idiots” and then they claim that it is CIT’s investigative methods that are the problem.

I have questioned the motives of some of these “researchers.” They claim they want to cut CIT out of the movement because their claim that a 757 did not hit the Pentagon will bring ridicule to the cause and undermine its chances of success. So they fuel internal dissension that will do exactly what they claim to be afraid of.

In his book Debunking 9/11 Debunking, Griffin questions the eyewitness account of Don Mason, who claims to have seen the light poles hit (p. 264).

“This claim, that the plane en route to the Pentagon hit five light poles at the Washington Boulevard overpass – three with one wing, two with the other – has been an important part of the evidence that a Boeing 757, or in any case an airplane with a wingspan of at least 100 feet (the distance between the light poles on the two sides of the road), really did strike the Pentagon. PM’s [Popular Mechanics] support of this claim includes photographs of the five poles, which were knocked down.

“Serious questions about the credibility of this claim have long been raised. But videotaped testimony has recently been presented that, if reliable, would make the claim even more dubious than it was before.”

Griffin refers to interviews in the CIT film The PentaCon that show that the flight path was to the north of the gas station, making it impossible for the plane to have hit the poles.”

The PentaCon – Smoking Gun Version (1:19:37) Published on Apr 23, 2011 at lyletrip youtube channel https://youtu.be/-bR-k96laOI

Barrie Zwicker is quoted in this blog as well: The evidence now shows, well past reasonable doubt, what happened. It was detonation of explosives within the building, timed to coincide with a flyover by a large jet plane, thus producing the clever illusion that flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon, heart of the official 9/11 Pentagon lie.

He adds: “To me, two most important questions now, almost nine years after the events, urgently call out for investigation. First, who are those behind the vicious attempts to discredit the work of the Citizen Investigation Team? Second, what are the motives of the would-be discreditors and those behind them? I say “attempts” because careful examination of the arguments of CIT’s tormentors show them to be tricky and unreliable – as flimsy as the official story they try to defend.”

By Craig McKee

In my last post, I deconstructed David Chandler’s very disturbing Pentagon presentation at last month’s 9/11 Truth Film Festival in Oakland, CA. But as troubling as his reinforcement of most of the official story was, it wasn’t the only talk at the festival given by a member of his “Team” of researchers.

Henry Knorr Defends Alison Weir from JVP Attacks on Voices in the Middle East on KPFA Pacifica Radio. Move the bar forward to the 38:00 minute mark to hear Henry Knorr, who is an American Jewish Bay Area activist against the 6 decade Apartheid Occupation of Palestine. He is also a member of JVP.  He calls it a “demonization campaign” against Alison Weir and IfAmericanKnew dot org. He also admires Alison for “not just talking to the choir”. He is disgusted with the secret dossier compiled on her, and how an umbrella group named The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation of Palestine was led to expel her due to the slander campaign. The real problem is that she stands against Zionism as a supremacist political ideology. He talks about her book Against Our Better Judgment about the Israel Lobby and how it is based to a large degree on academic histories by Jewish historians, thoroughly documented, “not kooky stuff” he asserts from years of study and activism on his own part. alisonweir-book-cover_alison-speaking

How to UNITE FOR OUR RIGHTS!

Right here at the beginning of the Puppet Trump Administration All Trump supporters should test Trump’s loyalty to them. Let me explain how to do it. It’s called UNITE FOR OUR RIGHTS!

The Trumpeteers really need to demand that our Bill of Rights be restored, that all Anti-Constitutional martial law powers passed by Puppet Obama to Puppet Trump be rescinded by President Trump now! They should abandon the Trump regime and all other traitors to the Constitution of the United States if they do not act immediately and decisively to restore the Republic and the Constitution of the United States. Puppet Prez Obama has passed on some draconian legal claims to Puppet Prez Trump. This is a review of several specific violations done in the name of “security”. We must UNITE FOR OUR RIGHTS!

Listen to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr!  “Obama Creates Propaganda Ministry; Now Trump Owns It” (7:21) The Ring of Fire hosted by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
trump-obama_la-times-crop_20161110

Note Published with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. video on Jan 27, 2017: “Just before the Christmas holiday, former President Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act which provides funding for the military. Buried inside the NDAA was another bill that officially establishes an anti-propaganda center in order for the State Department to recognize, understand and expose counter foreign state and non-state propaganda and disinformation efforts aimed at undermining the United States. They really said that. Mike Papantonio, host of America’s Lawyer, discusses this with Richard Eskow, host of The Zero Hour.”

Similarly, all of us American citizens should exercise our inalienable rights to voice our grievance against Puppet President Obama for signing police state laws in bills that should only be about monetary matters. They should not include clauses that claim Executive powers to use the U.S. military for imprisonment called indefinite detentions (BORDC) and executions of American citizens without any due process.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. mentions how Obama earlier, with the sweep of a pen, signed an NDAA that repealed the 1949 Smith-Mundt Act that forbade the US government to use psychological operations and propaganda on the American People.

The Two War Parties need to start taking orders from the American People! Break out of the Two Party Matrix Mind Trap! UNITE FOR OUR RIGHTS! Defend EVERYONE’S RIGHTS! Or lose them… For more specific information and videos about the deliberate misuse of the annual NDAA military funding bills to claim Anti-Constitutional powers, and to join efforts with other people who are working to reject and rescind such illegal power claims, visit BORDC (The Bill of Rights Defense Committee)!

See: “Domestic Propaganda Ban to be Lifted?” (9:32) Published on May 24, 2012 at The Alyona Show on RT. “Last week, the House passed the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act, which contains an amendment that would repeal the Smith-Mundt Act: a 1948 law that prevents the U.S. government from distributing propaganda at home. Alyona discusses the proposed provision with Michael Hastings, who broke the story. What is the significance of the amendment when the line between propaganda, and public relations has become increasingly blurred?” Hastings died in a bizarre car crash in California before he got to publish more exposes.

John Lennon Birthday Speakout Against Facebook Censorship Livestream Video

“Imagine A Day Without Censorship” Speakout At Facebook Zuckerberg’s SF Mansion (41:16) Labor Video YouTube Channel

Labor Video Labor Video John Lennon Birthday SpeakoutPublished Note on Oct 11, 2016: On John Lennon’s birthday October 9, 2016, a rally sponsored by LaborNet.org was held outside the San Francisco mansion of billionaire Mark Zuckerberg the owner of Facebook to protest the censorship and privatization of the internet. Participants discussed Zuckerberg’s agreement with the apartheid Israeli government and Netanyahu to censor the internet with critical content of the Israeli government. Facebook is also censoring live streaming from Standing Rock Native American pipeline protesters and Kurdish activists. * See the list of links documenting the citations of censorship or spying provided in the description box for this video.

International Labor Media Published Note on Oct 9, 2016: “In front of Mark Zuckerberg’s San Francisco mansion, protesting Facebook censorship of Palestinian reporters and more. Oct. 9, 2016.”

Amidst the general call for the creation of a Commons Free Speech Public Space on the Internet, there were those who stepped forth to voice more specific charges of censorship at the John Lennon’s Birthday Speak Out Against Facebook Censorship on Sunday, Oct 9, 2016 outside a Zuckerberg mansion in San Francisco, CA. ILM is the “International Labor Media” channel.

Steve Zeltzer at one of the Zuckerberg Bay Area mansions at the John Lennon’s Birthday Speakout Against Facebook Censorship on Oct 9, 2016 in San Francisco, California.

Steve Zeltzer of Labor Video says (4:28 – 4:58) that Zuckerberg’s “power over over a billion people who are now on Facebook is being used to control political debate and dissent. We believe that this is wrong. In fact, he met with Prime Minister Netanyahu and signed an agreement saying that he would work with the Israeli government to censor critical comments against the Apartheid regime of Israel, of the Zionist regime. If Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg want to be political appendages of the  Israeli government, that  obviously their choice. But they will have to pay politically for that, and everyone needs to know what they are doing.”

facebook-privacy413x310

“The other thing is the issue of spying because people who use Facebook put their personal names, their personal information on Facebook and he has access to it, which means the US government has access to it. So people have to be aware of that.” Zeltzer describes the global reach of Zuckerberg using Brazil as an example. He purchased the domain name “internet.com”. Tech barons want the internet to be privately owned explains Steve Zeltzer. “We need municipal WiFi free public internet.

Zeltzer refers to John Lennon’s Birthday in saying, “Imagine a day without censorship! Imagine a world without censorship!” (10:05 – 10:45)  “What the supporters of Zionism and the Apartheid regime in Israel want to do is they want to pass laws in the United States saying that you cannot boycott Israel because that’s ‘anti-Semitism’… Now this is a canard that is used against people to basically accuse people who are critical of the policies of Israel of being anti-Semitic. And this is a very reactionary dangerous kind of position. So, in New York Gov. Cuomo passed such a resolution. In California Gov. Brown signed such a resolution. We’re saying this is outrageous! People have the right to boycott.”

woman-speaker_ilm-live-stream-facebook-censorship_johnlennonb-dayspeakout_10-09-16_berkeley-calling-blog_gimmesometruth_vicsadot-screenshot

A woman speaks (12:50 – 13:08), “If we were to look at the history of Boycotting, Sanctions, Divestment movement within the U.S., it was successfully used to bring down the Apartheid South African regime. So at that time was that equated with being anti-White or Anti-Dutch?” She also cites Facebook for not allowing a livestream of the arrests at the Native American resistance at Standing Rock to protect their water rights against the proposed Dakota Access Oil Pipeline across their land. This woman speaker also cites the experience of having Green Party Jill Stein posts banned from being posted on Facebook. (This happened to me while trying to post to Facebook groups in which I am a member! VRS) The Woman’s Free Gaza Flotilla to end the blockade of Gaza was intercepted illegally in international waters, but that has been blocked out of the American corporate-government press, not just on Facebook.

The next speaker, the man with the “From Vietnam to Palestine Facebook/Zuckerberg Censoring History” sign, (21:18 -32:22) was concerned with how private property ownership of public forums like Facebook is part of the general elimination of the public common space for public expression. He focused on the recent role of Facebook in Turkey during an attempted coup where suppression of freedom of speech was openly done in the name of restoring order with emergency decrees. Journalists were beaten by police and dragged by the hair to jail when TV stations were shut down without any news coverage by the compliant complicit western media. Facebook “respects” the Turkish Anti-Terrorism Law, “which in Turkey it means that if you show the army killing civilians, that’s a terrorist act… Facebook goes along with this and shuts down the pages. As we have seen, in the last 10 days when Palestinian journalists try to show their opinion immediately Facebook has stepped in and shut it down.”

facebook-censor-1024x535
Steve Zeltzer comes back into the soundtrack around 39:33 to sum up the censorship  situation. Zuckerberg’s support for attacks on public education and on teachers’ unions reveals his ruling class politics. The people want genuine democracy, not the private ownership and public censorship and spying that we are getting on Facebook!
