The face for the New World Order Glenn Beck bashes Jesse Ventura on his radio show.
Jesse’s article was on Huffington Post for approximately 4 hours, before it was “banned.” Here it is:
You didn’t see anything about it in the mainstream media, but two weeks ago at a conference in San Francisco, more than one thousand architects and engineers signed a petition demanding that Congress begin a new investigation into the destruction of the World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11.
That’s right, these people put their reputations in potential jeopardy because they don’t buy the government’s version of events. They want to know how 200,000 tons of steel disintegrated and fell to the ground in 11 seconds. They question whether the hijacked planes were responsible — or whether it could have been a controlled demolition from inside that brought down the Twin Towers and Building 7.
Richard Gage, a member of the American Institute of Architects and the founder of Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth, put it like this: “The official Federal Emergency Management [Agency] and National Institute of Standards and Technology reports provide insufficient, contradictory and fraudulent accounts of the circumstances of the towers’ destruction.” He’s especially disturbed by Building 7, whose 447 stories came down in “pure free-fall acceleration” that afternoon — even though it was never hit by an aircraft.
This is a subject I take up in my new book, American Conspiracies, published this week by Skyhorse. An excerpt follows:
Some people have argued that the twin towers went down, within a half hour of one another, because of the way they were constructed. Well, those 425,000 cubic yards of concrete and 200,000 tons of steel were designed to hold up against a Boeing 707, the largest plane built at the time the towers were completed in 1973. Analysis had shown that a 707 traveling at 600 miles an hour (and those had four engines) would not cause major damage. The twin-engine Boeing 757s that hit on 9/11 were going 440 and 550 miles an hour.
Still, we are told that a molten, highly intense fuel mixture from the planes brought down these two steel-framed skyscrapers. Keep in mind that no other such skyscraper in history had ever been known to collapse completely due to fire damage. So could it actually have been the result of a controlled demolition from inside the buildings? I don’t claim expertise about this, but I did work four years as part of the Navy’s underwater demolition teams, where we were trained to blow things to hell and high water. And my staff talked at some length with a prominent physicist, Steven E. Jones, who says that a “gravity driven collapse” without demolition charges defies the laws of physics. These buildings fell, at nearly the rate of free-fall, straight down into their own footprint, in approximately ten seconds. An object dropped from the roof of the 110-story-tall towers would reach the ground in about 9.2 seconds. Then there’s the fact that steel beams that weighed as much as 200,000 pounds got tossed laterally as far as 500 feet.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) started its investigation on August 21, 2002. When their 10,000-page-long report came out three years later, the spokesman said there was no evidence to suggest a controlled demolition. But Steven E. Jones also says that molten metal found underground weeks later is proof that jet fuel couldn’t have been all that was responsible. I visited the site about three weeks after 9/11, with Governor Pataki and my wife Terry. It didn’t mean anything to me at the time, but they had to suspend digging that day because they were running into heat pockets of huge temperatures. These fires kept burning for more than three months, the longest-burning structure blaze ever. And this was all due to jet fuel? We’re talking molten metal more than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
Probably the most conclusive evidence about a controlled demolition is a research paper (two years, nine authors) published in the peer-reviewed Open Chemical Physics Journal, in April 2009. In studying dust samples from the site, these scientists found chips of nano-thermite, which is a high-tech incendiary/explosive. Here’s what the paper’s lead author, Dr. Niels Harrit of the University of Copenhagen’s chemistry department, had to say about the explosive that he’s convinced brought down the Twin Towers and the nearby Building 7:
“Thermite itself dates back to 1893. It is a mixture of aluminum and rust-powder, which react to create intense heat. The reaction produces iron, heated to 2500 degrees Centigrade. This can be used to do welding. It can also be used to melt other iron. So in nano-thermite, this powder from 1893 is reduced to tiny particles, perfectly mixed. When these react, the intense heat develops much more quickly. Nano-thermite can be mixed with additives to give off intense heat, or serve as a very effective explosive. It contains more energy than dynamite, and can be used as rocket fuel.”
Richard Gage is one of hundreds of credentialed architects and structural engineers who have put their careers on the line to point out the detailed anomalies and many implications of controlled demolition in the building collapses. As he puts it bluntly: “Once you get to the science, it’s indisputable.”

“I can’t believe the Huffington Post today will practice censorship,” Ventura says in astonishment. “I’ve got news for them. … I won’t ever write for ‘em again.”
Ventura had posted an item on Tuesday which took note of a recent conference at which “more than one thousand architects and engineers signed a petition demanding that Congress begin a new investigation into the destruction of the World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11.” He also quoted a few paragraphs from his new book, American Conspiracies, to explain why some of those experts see signs of controlled demolition.
The item was featured on the front page of Huffington Post when it first went up, but after a few hours it vanished. All that appears now at its original location is an editor’s note saying, “The Huffington Post’s editorial policy, laid out in our blogger guidelines, prohibits the promotion and promulgation of conspiracy theories — including those about 9/11. As such, we have removed this post.”
The note is followed by three pages of comments, enthusiastically arguing the pros and cons of controlled demolition and other 9/11 theories, that were posted during the couple of hours before the entry was deleted and comments were closed.
Huffington Post’s own guidelines for its bloggers state, “We must — and do — reserve the right to remove objectionable, inaccurate, or inflammatory material and, if necessary, suspend or revoke blogging privileges. This also includes propagating conspiracy theories and blogging about behind-the-scenes housekeeping issues that are not of interest to the general public.”
Anastasia Churkina, a correspondent for RT, interviewed Ventura about the controversy. “He’s a man who doesn’t mince his words too much,” she reported on Thursday. “He was pretty blunt.”
“I can’t believe the Huffington Post today will practice censorship,” Ventura told her angrily. “They asked me to be a contributing editor and they said, ‘Write about anything you want.’ So it was the second time I did something — and they removed it?”
“Well, I’ve got news for them,” he continued. “I won’t ever write for ‘em again. … I won’t do a thing for the Huffington Post because I don’t like it when people censor what I have to say.”
“All I do is ask questions!” he exploded. “That’s what bugs me about 9/11. 9/11 is an event you’re not allowed to ask a question about. … Clearly they don’t want any questions on it.”
Ironically, Ventura had to go to RT, the English-language version of a Russian news channel, to tell his story. Although polls show that large numbers of Americans believe in a broad range of conspiracy theories, and a majority entertain doubts about the official story of 9/11, few of those questions ever appear in the mainstream media.
As Raw Story recently reported , “In November of 2007, an online article noted, ‘Nearly two-thirds of Americans think it is possible that some federal officials had specific warnings of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, but chose to ignore those warnings, according to a Scripps Howard News Service/Ohio University poll.’ A national survey of 811 adult residents of the United States conducted by Scripps and Ohio University found that more than a third believe in a broad smorgasbord of conspiracy theories including the attacks, international plots to rig oil prices, the plot to assassinate President John F. Kennedy in 1963 and the government’s knowledge of intelligent life from other worlds. The high percentage is a manifestation, some say, of an American public that increasingly distrusts the federal government.”
Even liberal websites, however, discourage questions about 9/11, to the point where BooMan of theBooman Tribune had to preface a post at Daily Kos in 2005 by writing “I know this touches on verboten conspiracy theories, but this is a front-page NYT article.”
“It’s kind of hard to tell whether or not a new investigation will be launched,” Churkina concluded. “Many people don’t think this is going to be happening any time soon, even with such public figures, like Jesse Venture and other, calling for it.”
This video from RT was posted at YouTube on March 12, 2010.
The Lie: Patriot’s do not dare question their government with regard to 9/11. The Truth: It is not unpatriotic to question your government, to not question your government is unpatriotic.
A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government. -Edward Abbey
I am putting this article together in order to combat the lie – which is picking up an obvious desperate momentum in the corporate banking owned mainstream media – on the heels of the shooting at the Pentagon by the “9/11 Truther”, John Patrick Bedell.
In the coming days and weeks you will be deluged with incredible propaganda from all mainstream media as they attempt to have you believe that the 9/11 Truth Movement = dangerous, psychotic, deranged, mentally ill individuals with guns. Why will they be doing this? Easy. They are on the defensive – and their defense agenda wishes to serve 2 purposes:
- Discredit the Growing 9/11 Truth Movement
- Rid us of our Guns
In recent months, the media has had no choice but to report on the credence of scientific reports and information released in 2009 providing damning evidence supporting legitimate questions raised by many in the 9/11 Truth Movement, especially the Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (nano-thermite, molten steel, etc).
The following article from puppetgov.com, written 3 days prior to the pentagon shooting, provides an excellent explanation about the new reports and evidence, and the increased media coverage in other countries that pushed our mainstream media (reluctantly) into covering the legitimacy of the questions into 9/11. Before you continue with my article it is imperative that you read this article in its entirety:
In the past year, in response to emerging independent science on the 9/11 attacks, nine corporate, seven public, and two independent media outlets aired analytic programs investigating the official account.
Increasingly, the issue is treated as a scientific controversy worthy of debate, rather than as a “conspiracy theory” ignoring science and common sense.
This essay presents these media analyses in the form of 18 case studies.
Eight countries – Britain , Canada , Denmark , France , the Netherlands , New Zealand , Norway and Russia – have allowed their publicly-owned broadcasting stations to air the full spectrum of evidence challenging the truth of the official account of 9/11.
This more open approach taken in the international media – I could also have included the Japanese media – might be a sign that worldwide public and corporate media organizations are positioning themselves, and preparing their audiences, for a possible revelation of the truth of the claim that forces within the US government were complicit in the attacks – a revelation that would call into question the publicly given rationale for the military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.
The evidence now being explored in the international media may pave the way for the US media to take an in-depth look at the implications of what is now known about 9/11, and to re-examine the country’s foreign and domestic policies in the light of this knowledge.
Until 2009, doubts about the official 9/11 story were briefly entertained by the mainstream media on each anniversary of the event, allowing the independent research community only a fleeting moment once a year to publicly voice its findings.
But after crucial scientific evidence emerged in April 2009 to challenge the official story of how the towers fell, a spate of European media reports followed. The news coverage of this evidence seems to have opened the door to more serious reflection on all aspects of the 9/11 issue in the major media.

As I pointed out (above) – the article you just read was written days prior to the Pentagon shooting. The feeling that “truth is rising” has been very palpable – so much so that people have made predictions that something would happen that would tie the 9/11 Truth Movement to “acts of terror.” They were right – and if you don’t know how they could predict something like this – you need to know.
Because recent evidence has caused a firestorm of 9/11 Truth Movement reporting in several other countries, the “liberal” media (the term ‘truther’ has been tied to the left) was forced into airing the new 9/11 evidence in such a way that the evidence came first and “conspiracy” came second (never handled this way before), in order to maintain a semblance of reporting credibility. Over on the “conservative” side, Bill O’Reilly and Hannity continued to berate anyone who questioned the events of 9/11 while Glenn Beck was warning about the “dangerous 9/11 Truther’s” and the safety of the president.
If you are a Glenn Beck follower, you may believe that you have been “awakened” to the truth. What better way to keep you asleep than to have you believe you are already awake – when you are not? It’s actually brilliant! The fact is, until you are aware that the mainstream media – all of it – including FOX, is owned by the very same corporations that are destroying this country, and that their agenda is employer, greed, money, power and New World Order driven – you are still asleep! The mainstream media does not exist to inform you of the truth and the sooner you realize this, the sooner we can join together against the “real perpetrators” of harm to our country, our freedom, our children and to all of humanity.
Truth is what they fear. Our ability to fight back is what they fear – and although the message is being delivered differently depending from what side it is coming (left or right) – the message is the same! The message is, “Stay Away From the Truth!” In the video above, you seen how the right (Beck) delivers the message (fearmongering: beware of those dangerous 9/11 Truthers!). Let’s now take a look at what was all over CNN yesterday (Situation Room and Anderson Cooper 360).
So, you see, the right tells you that the 9/11 Truthers are “dangerous kooks” – while the left ties the Truth Movement and Patriots with “hate and mental illness.” The agenda is the same. Both messages are geared to keep you away from the truth.
Why isn’t this clear to you?
Don’t let them sidetrack you. Don’t fall for it! The fact is that the truth IS rising and gaining momentum and in response to this, they are desperately attempting to discredit and quell the truth! And this should serve as the ultimate testimony as to how powerful the truth really is .. that they would be so fearful of it.
If you haven’t done so already, turn off your TV. The truth will not be televised. If turning off your TV is a scary thought, I promise you it is a beautiful alternative to what is in store for us if we do not break free of the deception and the programming. People in other countries (who do not watch the US mainstream TV) know how relentless and deceiving our mainstream media is.. as well as how programmed we are! Once you have the TV off for a couple of days, you actually begin to prefer it off.
Stop believing what you are being told. Do your own research, form your own opinions. Find the truth, it is available to you! Although it might not be available much longer.
So.. to all you dangerous, mentally ill, deranged, freedom and truth loving, hateful patriots – spread the truth! Keep up the fight!

Jesse Ventura is a good example of how strong truth is when you know the facts. In video 2-6 below, Jesse explains what led him to believe that the government was involved in 9/11. Do yourself a favor, start with these videos then continue on with own research. You’ve been lied to:

“Naturally the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” – Hermann Goering
Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it. – Adolph Hitler
