Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Loose Change >> Originally Published 29th April 2009

Microcinema International DVD today announced the acquisition of Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup”, the latest installment in the series from director Dylan Avery and producers Matthew Brown and Korey Rowe.

Loose Change (2005) and the sequels have been viewed online over 100 million times worldwide and sold nearly two million cumulative units. Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup will be available exclusively on DVD September 22, 2009.

Dramatically narrated by Daniel Sunjata, currently starring on FXs critically acclaimed Rescue Me as Franco Rivera, Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup explores historical events that reshaped the world from the Reichstag Fire in 1933 that catapulted Hitler to dictatorship – to the Gulf of Tonkin Incident in 1964 that led to the Vietnam War. The film leads the audience through a roller-coaster of pivotal history before delving into the largest event of all – 9/11. It also analyzes the steps America took in the aftermath of the disaster, and the suspicious events that followed.

Filmmaker Dylan Averys vision and hope is for those affected by 9/11 to receive the answers they seek. He asks for a fundamental call to action, as displayed in the previous Loose Change films, and supports the 9/11 truth movement by seeking honesty and clarity from those who have covered up actual events. A topic that inspires passion among many, the producers are actively seeking celebrities to be a voice for those whose questions have remained unanswered to date.

The American people are still living in the aftermath of 9/11 and dealing with the repercussions, said Dylan Avery, writer and director. With a new administration in office, information is being revealed almost on a daily basis. With this film it is our hope that answers will be revealed and questions will continue to be asked.

Microcinema International holds the exclusive worldwide distribution rights for Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup.





Searle, Monsanto and Ajinomoto: Three Corporate Miscreants in the Toxic Junk Food Additive and Aspartame Business

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

OpEdNews >> 30th April 2009

Each day, I hear more disturbing news about Monsanto, the maker of Round-Up and the agricultural company that has been polluting the world with various poisons for decades with products such as Agent Orange and industrial coolants known as PCB’s.

Monsano’s advertising campaigns have convinced many people that Round-Up is safe, but the facts just don’t support this.

The Women’s Cancer Resource Center (WCRC) and CHOSE (Coalition for a Healthy Oakland School Environment), showed that chemicals such as Round-Up (glyphosate) can result in reproductive damage as well as damage to the kidney and liver, and some studies show a link between the chemical and cancer. (Chemical Injury Network, June 2001)

According to the National Audubon Society, of the roughly 672 million birds exposed to chemicals such as Round-Up in the United States each year, 10 percent – or 67 million – are killed.


Another Study Links Fluoride to Bone Cancer

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

PRNewswire-USNewswire >> Originally Published 29th April 2009

Blood fluoride levels were significantly higher in patients with osteosarcoma than in control groups, according to research published in Biological Trace Element Research (April 2009). Osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer, occurs mostly in children and young adults.

Randhu and colleagues measured serum fluoride levels in three equal groups of age-matched and sex-matched patients. Group one had osteosarcoma, group two had non-osteosarcoma bone tumors, and group three had musculo-skeletal pain.(1)

“Mean serum fluoride concentration was found to be significantly higher in patients with osteosarcoma as compared to the other two groups,” writes Randhu’s team. “(T)his report proves a link between raised fluoride levels in serum and osteosarcoma,” they write.

This reinforces a 2006 published Harvard study by Bassin showing a link between water fluoridation and osteosarcoma in young boys.(2)

A 1992 New Jersey Department of Health study shows osteosarcoma rates higher among young males in fluoridated vs. unfluoridated regions of New Jersey.(3)

More studies link fluoride to bone and other cancers but are downplayed or ignored by government officials.(4)(5)

Bone defects similar to bone cancer were detected in fluoridated Newburgh, NY children as early as 1955. Newburgh is home of the first human health fluoridation experiment begun in 1945.

According to Christopher Bryson in The Fluoride Deception, “A radiologist, Dr. John Caffey of Columbia University, called the defects ‘striking’ in their ‘similarity’ to bone cancer… and seen more than twice as frequently among boys in Newburgh as among boys in nonfluoridated Kingston [the control city].”(6)

In 2006, the prestigious National Research Council review of fluoride/fluoridation toxicology found a fluoride/bone cancer link plausible.

“If governments truly want to save money, stopping fluoridation is a no-brainer. It would save money, preserve health and teeth,” says attorney Paul Beeber, President, New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation.

In 2005, 11 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) employee unions, representing over 7000 environmental and public health professionals called for a moratorium on fluoridation programs across the country and asked EPA management to recognize fluoride as posing a serious risk of causing cancer in people.(7)

In addition, over 2,430 professionals urge the U.S. Congress to stop fluoridation until Congressional hearings are conducted, citing scientific evidence that fluoridation, long promoted to fight tooth decay, is ineffective and has serious health risks. See statement:

9/11: A government story full of holes

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Daily Lobo >> 30th April 2009

Simon Polakowski said that if he believed the government’s story on Sept. 11, 2001, he might as well believe the Earth is flat.

Polakowski produces an hour-long show with his friend Bob Martin called “9/11 Myth vs. Reality.”

The show airs at 8 p.m. Mondays on public access channel 27.

He said that on Sept. 11, he was listening to the newscasts and thought to himself, “This is such bullshit.”

He started the show more than one year ago to reach people who had similar doubts.

“From what I’ve been researching, there are millions of people who do not believe the official story and explanation,” Polakowski said. “There are shows like this all across (the country). We get a lot of our material off of YouTube and off the Internet, and I am very thankful for all the people who are doing this research totally out-of-pocket.”

The story of 19 hijackers led by “a man in a cave” is something Polakowski and Martin have a hard time believing.

“It was the most far-fetched story I have ever heard in my life,” Polakowski said. “The most powerful nation on the face of the Earth, the most advanced military with over 30 intelligence agencies with over $40 billion in the annual budget to protect the nation, and they all failed?”

Martin was working as a doctor and living in New York on Sept. 11 and said he went to Ground Zero to help.

“One thing that bothered me was that we all noticed that the skies were quite empty, and there were no planes flying because there was a stop order,” Martin said. “But they were really quiet. There were no military aircrafts over New York City for quite sometime, and somebody yelled out, ‘Where the hell are the jets?’ That question gnawed at me for the following year.”

Martin said that as the day went on, there were more questions and concerns that popped up in his head.

“Another thing that gnawed at me was when I went down to Ground Zero, – it occurred to me that there was almost nothing left of these structures,” Martin said. “I’m looking at girders that weigh anywhere from 4 to 300 tons. They were embedded in other skyscrapers like giant arrows. We’re talking about distances upwards of 400 feet. Because this was allegedly a gravity-driven collapse, I found it very hard to reckon with what I saw.”



Feds knew Air Force One photo-op flyover might spark panic in the city – but didn’t give a hoot

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

NY Daily News >> Originally Published 29th April 2009

Federal officials knew a flyover in lower Manhattan could spark chaos and panic in the streets below – but they did it anyway.

A memo clearly marked “FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY,” shows the Federal Aviation Administration was aware that sending a Boeing 747 and F-16 fighter jet over New York City at a low altitude raised “the possibility of public concern.”

Yet, the agency demanded the information be shared on a “need to know” basis and the public and media be kept in the dark.

It was a move branded “sheer stupidity” by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) yesterday.

“To say that it should not be made public knowing that it might scare people, it’s just confounding,” he said.

“It’s what gives Washington and government a bad name.”

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly told WCBS-TV it showed “insensitivity to the psychic wounds” the city has suffered since 9/11.


Memo: 9/11 Commission Witnesses Were Intimidated By Government “Minders”

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

More evidence of whitewash emerges

Infowars >> Originally Published 29th April 2009

Somewhat lost within the flu pandemic media hype this week is an important new revelation concerning the cover up of the events of 9/11.

A recently uncovered 9/11 Commission memo dating from October 2003, half way through the panel’s investigation, addresses concerns that government “minders” were intimidating witnesses and shaping their testimonies.

The document was drafted by Kevin Scheid, a senior staffer who led the commission’s Team 2, which was responsible for reviewing the overarching structure of the US intelligence community.

Names also appearing on the memo are those of staffers Lorry Fenner, an air force intelligence officer, and lawyer Gordon Lederman.

The memo, entitled “Executive Branch Minders’ Intimidation of Witnesses,” states the following:

  • Minders “answer[ed] questions directed at witnesses;”
  • Minders acted as “monitors, reporting to their respective agencies on Commission staffs lines of inquiry and witnesses’ verbatim responses.” The staff thought this “conveys to witnesses that their superiors will review their statements and may engage in retribution;”
  • Minders’ notetaking “facilitates agencies in alerting future witnesses to the Commission’s lines of inquiry and permits agencies to prepare future witnesses either explicitly or implicitly.”
  • Minders “positioned themselves physically and have conducted themselves in a manner that we believe intimidates witnesses from giving full and candid responses to our questions.”

The staffers make it clear that intimidation by minders was widespread and had not only occurred with their team’s witnesses.

The memo was discovered by an independent researcher in the National Archives, to which it was added earlier this year.

The revelations come in the wake of an admission by the senior counsel to the 9/11 Commission – John Farmer – who said that the government agreed not to tell the truth about the events of 9/11.

Farmer’s book about his experiences working for the Commission, set to be released in September, unveils how “the public had been seriously misled about what occurred during the morning of the attacks,” and Farmer himself states that “at some level of the government, at some point in time…there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened.”

Farmer’s statements dovetail with those highlighted in an August 2006 Washington Post report, which stated that “Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon’s initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate.”

The report revealed how the 10-member commission deeply suspected deception to the point where they considered referring the matter to the Justice Department for criminal investigation.

These statements and testimonies, combined with the swathes of still unanswered questions surrounding the attacks, confirm that the 9/11 Commission was a complete whitewash and intensify the need to establish a new independent investigation.

UK: Council ‘spies’ used to catch people breaking law

Monday, April 27th, 2009

Aberdeen Evening Press >> 27th April 2009

Officers in Aberdeen city and shire check e-mail and phone records

COUNCIL spies have been used to snare benefit fraudsters and rogue traders, the Evening Express can reveal.

Officers in Aberdeen carried out eight surveillance operations in 2008, including the use of “covert human intelligence sources” on two occasions.

In Aberdeenshire a car dealer and doorstep salesmen were targeted for surveillance.

Under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA), a council can monitor people believed to be breaking the law.

But today a civil liberties group said surveillance should be a job for police or the security services.

Michael Parker, of the No2ID campaign which opposes national ID cards, said: “Local authority officers are public servants who are there to do an administrative role.

“They shouldn’t see themselves as gumshoes hanging around doorways.”

Aberdeen City Council defended its use of RIPA. A spokesman said: “The services who utilise covert surveillance are benefit fraud, council tax, housing benefit, environmental health and trading standards.”

RIPA does not allow councils to carry out “intrusive surveillance” such as bugging, phone tapping or obtaining transcripts of actual conversations.

However, it can be used to check phone and e-mail records.


UK Gov’t outlines Facebook monitoring plans

Monday, April 27th, 2009

ZDNet >> 27th April 2009

The government wants communications service providers to record, retain and process details of all communications that take place over their networks, the home secretary said on Monday.

Jacqui Smith was speaking at the launch of a consultation entitled Protecting the Public in a Changing Communications Environment. She said it was essential for such information to be easily accessible by public authorities, including the police, the Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca), HM Revenue & Customs, and the intelligence agencies.

The information that the government wants communications service providers (CSPs) to store and process covers the circumstances of communications – that is, who was contacting whom, and when and how that communication was made – rather than the content of those communications.

Legislation has already come into force that requires service providers to retain details of user internet access, email and internet telephony for a year. The rules being proposed in the Home Office’s new consultation, however, also take in communications made using third-party providers, such as webmail providers and social networks such as Facebook. Facebook’s chief privacy officer, Chris Kelly, told ZDNet UK in March that such plans were “overkill”.

Smith said on Monday that, if public authorities are to access and correlate many kinds of communications data within a reasonable timeframe, they need such data to be held in a form where it can be easily and quickly accessed. Soca director-general Bill Hughes, speaking at the same event, also said communications data were “essential tools” for fighting crime.

BERKELEY, Calif., April 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — More than 640 Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth) are calling for a new, independent investigation into the destruction of the World Trade Center high-rises. These building professionals cite evidence of explosive demolition at all three WTC high-rises on 9/11 and document the evidence at their website. Michael Heimbach, assistant director of the FBI’s counterterrorism division, wrote that their claims and conclusion were “backed by thorough research and analysis.”(1)

AE911Truth will host exhibitor’s information booth #2609(2) at this year’s annual convention of the prestigious American Institute of Architects (AIA). The convention(3), with more than 800 exhibitors and more than 20,000 participating architects, will take place in San Francisco’s Moscone Center, April 30-May 2.

This exhibition will be followed up on Saturday, May 2nd with a dynamic multi-media presentation by AE911Truth founder Richard Gage, AIA. Mr. Gage will cover the forensic evidence found at the crime scene as well as a review of the omissions in the official FEMA and NIST reports. Join AE911Truth at the Westin Market Street Hotel at 50 Third St. in San Francisco at 4:00 pm on Saturday for this thorough review of the myth-shattering information.

Time magazine acknowledged(4) in 2006 that the 9/11 Truth movement was not a “fringe phenomenon,” but “a mainstream political reality.” As well, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth petition signers(5) have been encouraged by President Obama’s promise to “restore science to its rightful place.”

Join AE911Truth at booth #2609 to review the startling evidence not reported in the media or by agencies in charge of the investigations.
