Quality Video of Twin Towers

This is one of the clearest videos of the towers. After the second tower is hit (around the 11:40 - 12:16 mark), the viewer said it was a "military plane."

"We watched and filmed the attack on the WTC out the window of home, 36 floors up and 500 yards away from the North tower."

Editor Note: I do not know if this video has been edited or if this is the entire footage.

A tourist took this video in and around the WTC one month before 9/11/2001.


9/11 Film Festival in Peterborough, NH on Saturdays

9/11 Film Festival in Peterborough, New Hampshire

9:11am - 9:11pm

This is the poster:

This is the 2 col x 2" newspaper ad we're running every week:

Kathleen got some comfy chairs and a rug from her storage bin.
According to Caz and Carol, they are so much better than the folding chairs we were going to use.

Harry made a lot of displays that really help to educate the public. Bravo Harry! Your work has made a huge difference here.

John, our favorite Physicist, had a bad cold but will attend the next Saturday. His advice in planning this film festival was invaluable.

Peter built sides on his truck to haul Harry's displays safely.

That's a sandwich board leaning against the wall (below)...Caz strolled around town in it.

Because of the economy, we were able to find an empty commercial space to rent on Saturdays - in downtown Peterborough's Depot Square.

We had books and banners for sale:

Harry build this amazing model - to scale - of the WTC Complex. It really shows how big WTC #7 was in relation to the Twin Towers.

We had literature to hand out, and a donation jar. At the end of the day it paid our rent.

Harry also mounted some important pictures to take note of.

We eventually moved this little sign nearer to the front door.

Carol baked some organic cookies and we served fair-trade coffee in a non-aluminum pot that Caz bought.

Jay painted signs and did a lot of work hauling furniture. He and Kathleen hung a huge amount of posters that Karin designed.

When there was a lull - we took the opportunity to watch some movies from Caz's collection that most of us had not seen before.

When a newcomer who came in and didn't know anything about why we are asking for a new investigation into 9/11, we usually showed then: 9/11: Blueprint for Truth. And sometimes we showed Zero.

This is from a seldom seen flick entitled Who Killed John O'Neill?

Jack did the electronics in order to make our small-town film festival work to bring the Truth of 9/11 to our fellow citizens.

Former NASA Director Says World Trade Center Towers Were Felled by Controlled Demolition

On October 21st at the University of San Diego, Mr. Dwain Deets, former Director of NASA Aerospace Projects, gave a multimedia presentation on behalf of nearly one thousand architects and engineers who cite evidence of explosive demolition in all three World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11 and are calling for a new, independent investigation into their destruction. These architects and engineers are listed on their website at ae911Truth.org.

Mr. Deets was an engineering executive with NASA Dryden Flight Research Center for more than 37 years and formerly served as Director, Research Engineering Division at Dryden. He received the Presidential Meritorious Rank Award in the federal government’s Senior Executive Service (1988). In 1986, Deets was awarded the Wright Brothers Lectureship in Aeronautics, a distinguished speaking engagement sponsored by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).

Resolutely empirical, non-political, and non-finger-pointing, ae911Truth only asks for a new investigation of the towers’ collapse that does justice to the forensic evidence it presents. The concerns presented by Mr. Deets and the conclusions of Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth are shared by hundreds of scientists; senior-level military, intelligence, and government officials; firefighters; pilots and aviation professionals; scholars and university professors; 9/11 survivors and family members; and media professionals around the world.

"Granny D" Quote

"Never be discouraged from being an activist because people tell you that you'll not succeed. You have already succeeded if you're out there representing truth or justice or compassion or fairness or love.

You already have your victory because you have changed the world; you have changed the status quo by one; you have changed the chemistry of things, and changes will spread from you, will be easier to happen again in others because of you, because, believe it or not, you are the center of the world."

Frustrated with Amy Goodman

"Democracy (NOT) Now?"

Surely Amy Goodman
must know for certain is that the official story cannot be true. But inexplicably she refuses to do any in-depth reporting whatsoever on the need for a new investigation into 9/11.

Amy refuses to answer our letters, calls and emails. Could this be her problem?

Or is it this? Consider this quote from former CIA Director William Colby: "The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) owns everyone of any significance in the major media." Google "Operation Mockingbird" to learn some of the history of the controlled corporate media. Mockingbird was a secret CIA campaign to influence domestic and foreign media in the 1950s, made public in 1975 during the Church committee investigation. Soon after Mockingbird was implemented, it was assessed to be a 'spectacular success'.

You can hear explosions and see dust rise up from ground level before the first tower comes down.

Obvious explosion sounds are heard in this unique 9/11 footage. From the point of perspective at Pier A Park (40.736755,-74.025074), the sound delay was 8.5 seconds.

Japanese main opposition party questions 9/11 in parliamen

March 8, 2010, Washington Post

Yukihisa Fujita is an influential member of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan. As chief of the DPJ's international department and head of the Research Committee on Foreign Affairs in the upper house of Japan's parliament, to which he was elected in 2007, he is a Brahmin in the foreign policy establishment of Washington's most important East Asian ally.

He also seems to think that America's rendering of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, is a gigantic hoax. He questions whether it was really the work of terrorists; suggests that shadowy forces with advance knowledge of the plot played the stock market to profit from it; peddles the ... idea that eight of the 19 hijackers are alive and well; and hints that controlled demolition rather than fire or debris may be a more likely explanation for at least the collapse of the building at 7 World Trade Center, which was adjacent to the twin towers.

As with almost any calamity whose scale and scope assume historic proportions, the events of Sept. 11 have spawned a thriving subculture of conspiracy theorists at home and abroad. We have no reason to believe that Mr. Fujita's views are widely shared in Japan. His proposal two years ago that Tokyo undertake an independent investigation into the Sept. 11 attacks, in which 24 Japanese citizens died, went nowhere.

Note: How interesting that the Washington Post is just now reporting this, when this brave Japanese politician presented his case on 9/11 to the Japanese parliament over two years ago. To read Fujita's revealing response to this editorial, click here.

Jesse Ventura Censored by The Huffington Post

Ventura: ‘You’re not allowed to ask’ about 9/11

Former Minnesota governor and one-time professional wrestler Jesse Ventura has run afoul of the Huffington Post's no-conspiracy-theory policy, and he's not happy about it.

"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 the Booman 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."

MOVIE: Orwell Rolls in His Grave

"Could a media system, controlled by a few global corporations with the ability to overwhelm all competing voices, be able to turn lies into truth?..."

This chilling documentary film examines the relationship between the media, corporate America, and government. In a country where the "top 1% control 90% of the wealth", the film argues that the media system is nothing but a "subsidiary of corporate America."

Rep. Rush Holt Urges Independent Anthrax Investigation

U.S. Rep. Rush Holt (Democrat-NJ) succeeded in including language in the 2010 Intelligence Authorization Bill that would require the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community to examine the possibility of a foreign connection to the 2001 anthrax attacks.

The amendment was added less than a week after the FBI arbitrarily closed its investigation.

The "Treason in America Conference" 2010

There is a growing number of Americans who believe 9/11 was an inside job.

9/11 Truthers, as they are known, attended a two day conference that was called Treason in America, in the hopes of bringing awareness to their cause. Is this a signal that the movement is gaining traction?

Eliminate the Middleman - Vote Directly for the Corporation for Congress!

Murray Hill Inc., is running for Congress. No, Murray Hill isn't a person - and that's exactly the point. Murray Hill Inc. is a Corporation.

The stunt is designed to highlight the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which says corporations have a First Amendment right to spend unlimited amounts of money on elections.

Until now, corporations only influenced politics with high-paid lobbyists and backroom deals. But today, thanks to an enlightened Supreme Court, Corporations now have all the rights the founding fathers meant for us.

That's why Murray Hill Incorporated is taking democracy's next step-- running for Congress.

“Let’s Franchise Democracy!” Franchise Opportunity Here.

Thom Hartmann interviews a Corporation now running for Congress:

Obviously this will solve the ongoing lack of any Congressional attention whatsoever to the Truth of 9/11. Now we can start our own Corporation (outsourced to China for cheaps), and we're go to go with a NEW (and this time legitimate) INVESTIGATION into the tragic events that surrounded 9/11.

Thanks Supreme Court!

In a 5-4 decision you gave us George Bush who brought us 9/11. And now you give us the green light to buy some Corporation to begin a long needed new investigation into what really happened on 9/11.

Richmond, New Hampshire Passes Resolution For New 9/11 Investigation

On March 9, 2010 voters in the town of Richmond, New Hampshire became the second town in the United States to pass a resolution calling upon Congress to open a new investigation into the events of September 11, 2001. The first resolution of this kind was passed by the voters of Lincoln, Vermont in 2007.

National Icon "Granny D" dies at 100

“You have the power of one,” she said. “And if you use it for something that’s bigger than you are, people will come.” Doris "Granny D" Haddock

Granny D also understood and supported our efforts to spread the Truth of 9/11.

Doris “Granny D” Haddock died peacefully today in her Dublin, New Hampshire family home at 7:18 p.m. Tuesday, March 9, 2010. She was 100 years old. Born in 1910 in Laconia, New Hampshire, she attended Emerson College and lived through two world wars and the Great Depression.

She was an activist for her community and for her country, remaining active until the return of chronic respiratory problems four days ago.

She walked across the United States at the age of 90 in the year 2000, in a successful effort to promote the passage of the McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform Act.

In 2004, Granny D decided to challenge incumbent Senator Judd Gregg for his US Senate seat. She hoped to demonstrate that ordinary people can run for office and win with the support of small donations from individuals.

Despite a shortened, grassroots campaign without the benefit of any advertising dollars, Granny D garnered an impressive 34% of the vote. During the past year five years, Granny D has traveled the country speaking about campaign finance reform and working on behalf of legislation for publicly-funded elections in New Hampshire.

In the 1960s, she and her husband, James Haddock, Sr., were instrumental in halting planned nuclear tests that would have destroyed a native fishing village and region in Alaska.

The following was written in The Keene Sentinel. Wednesday, March 10, 2010:

DUBLIN, NH — Doris Haddock of Dublin, who walked across the country at age 90 to promote campaign finance reform and later waged a quixotic campaign for U.S. Senate, has died. She was 100.

Haddock died Tuesday of chronic respiratory illness at her home in Dublin, said spokeswoman and family friend Maude Salinger. She was surrounded by her son, daughter-in-law, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

In 2000, Haddock walked 3,200 miles to draw attention to campaign finance reform. In 2004, at age 94 and bolstered by her new notoriety, she ran for the U.S. Senate against Republican Judd Gregg.

The subtitle of her autobiography, written with Dennis Burke, was “You’re Never Too Old to Raise a Little Hell.”

“Her age wasn’t a factor in what she did,” Salinger said. “She never gave up. Until the end, she advocated for public funding. She would have wanted people to know that democracy and government belongs to us.”

Haddock was true to her cause right up until her death.

When the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in January to ease limits on corporate campaign contributions, she fired back:

“The Supreme Court, representing a radical fringe that does not share the despair of the grand majority of Americans, has today made things considerably worse by undoing the modest reforms I walked for and went to jail for, and that tens of thousands of other Americans fought very hard to see enacted. ...

“The Supreme Court now opens the floodgates to usher in a new tsunami of corporate money into politics.”

In an interview with The Sentinel near the time of her 100th birthday, in January, Haddock said every month she continued to get hundreds of e-mails and letters from supporters around the world.

The HBO documentary “Run Granny Run,” which chronicled her cross-country walk, helped to fuel her cause and her legend.

Many told her she inspired them to stand up for something they believe in.

She printed the e-mails and kept them in a thick folder in her bedroom, she said.

She spent several hours a day on her computer, tracking campaign finance reform measures across the country, writing speeches and newspaper columns editorials on the subject and responding to e-mails from her fans.

She walked regularly — a mile or two several days a week — a practice she credited for helping to keep her young.

Haddock said her passion for taking big money out of politics at the state and federal levels helped her to keep going.

Doing so, she said, would bring true democracy to the country. That’s a legacy she longed to leave behind for her 16 great-grandchildren.

“I’ve been working on it for 10 years,” she said in January. “It will mean that anyone can run for office if they have the will and the guts.”

“But today, it costs so much to run for office, and it’s costing more and more all the time, and there are very few people who have the money to do it. They have to get it and they get it from special interests or from corporations.”

Haddock was born Jan. 24, 1910, in Laconia and attended Emerson College before marrying James Haddock. She later worked at a local shoe company for 20 years.

She spent a decade caring for her husband after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. He died in 1993.

After retiring in 1972, Haddock became more active in community affairs.

In 1997, Haddock began to get involved with the cause that would become her life’s mission. She became interested in campaign finance reform after the defeat of the first attempt of Sens. John McCain and Russ Feingold to remove unregulated “soft” money from campaigns in 1995.

She gathered more than 100,000 signatures for a petition in support of the McCain-Feingold bill.

But a year later, disappointed with the response from her local representatives, the 89-year-old decided to begin training for a walk across the country as a champion for the cause.

Inspiration for her cross-country trek came from the Tuesday Morning Academy, a group of women in Dublin who met every Tuesday at 8 a.m. to do ballet exercises and discuss world affairs.

Her walk began Jan. 1, 1999, in Los Angeles and, 3,200 miles later, she arrived in Washington D.C., trailed by a crowd of about 2,200 supporters.

Covering about 10 miles a day, Haddock walked through more than 1,000 miles of desert, climbed the Appalachian Range in blizzard conditions and even skied 100 miles after snowfall made roadside walking impossible. She started in near-obscurity, but soon was discovered by local and national media.

The response from people along the way was one of the things she’ll always remember from the walk, Haddock said. “I had no money,” she said. “I walked as a pilgrim across the states.

“I walked until given shelter. I fasted until given food.”

And she shared her message with anyone who would listen, Haddock said.

“I stopped at every dog fight, any place, just so that my name is known and my name means public funding of elections,” she said. “It’s got to come. It’s going to.”

Burke, who co-wrote Haddock’s memoir, met Haddock as she walked through Arizona on her way to Washington.

“Doris was one of the youngest people I have ever known. She was a little kid about her country — so in love she was with it and so excited for it always,” he said early today.

In 2004, Haddock jumped into the Senate race on the last day to file after the presumptive Democratic nominee dropped out when his campaign manager was accused of financial fraud. A few months before the election, she officially changed her name to “Granny D,” but stressed that the “D” stood for “Doris,” not her party affiliation.

On Election Day, Judd Gregg won. But Haddock still saw the 34 percent of the vote she captured as a victory.

“I wasn’t going to just let him have it without giving a fight,” she said.

Mark Fernald, a former state senator and a Sharon resident who practices law in Peterborough, said Granny D was a woman of remarkable poise and commitment, which made it easy for people to naturally be drawn to her.

“She was genuine,” Fernald said this morning. “She had a way about her, and people liked her. She was out to tell her story; she didn’t put people down, she didn’t lecture, she talked about what she believed in and why we needed this change (campaign finance reform) to change our country.”

In recent years, she founded a group that pushed the state Legislature to create the Citizen Funded Election Task Force and attended the task force’s weekly meetings. She was honored at a Statehouse ceremony in January to mark her 100th birthday.

She was working on a new book, “My Bohemian Century,” which focuses on her college days and her Senate campaign and is expected to be published this spring. Haddock had stayed with Burke’s family in Phoenix last month to complete work on it, he said.

“Two things that people might not know, but should,” Fernald said, “she was a marvelous writer and speaker, and she wrote all her own stuff. And it was good. She really thought very deeply about what it meant to be an American, to live in a democracy. She’d get up there, and make these speeches, at age 88, 90, 92, and she never wore reading glasses.

“In some ways, she seemed like she was ageless — the mind of a 25 year old, the eyes of a 35 year old ... and the legs of a 40 year old.”

In the book’s dedication, Haddock offers readers advice: “You have to keep the young adventurer inside your heart alive long enough for it to someday re-emerge. It may take some coaxing and some courage, but that person is in you always — never growing old.”

In February, “Sources of Strength: Granny D at 100” was published. The book focuses on how she’s managed to live such a long and active life and includes the text of several of her speeches.

Both Democrats and Republicans offered condolences Tuesday night.

“Her commitment to fair and open democracy should inspire us all to work even harder for reform,” state Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley.

“We are always saddened when someone with a genuine commitment to their values and principles passes away,” said Republican Party Chairman John H. Sununu. “Granny D was an unwavering advocate for her beliefs, and her tireless efforts inspired many Granite Staters to participate in our political process,” he said.

Haddock told The Sentinel in January that she hopes her legacy will transcend politics.

“You have the power of one,” she said. “And if you use it for something that’s bigger than you are, people will come.”

What Happened to Building #7?

An Appeal to Firefighters, Present and Past from Retired FDNY Lieutenant Anton Vodvarka

20 August 2008

"Fellow Firefighters, A great tragedy befell our community on September 11, 2001, an unprecedented 343 deaths in the line of duty.

As horrible as that toll is, if there were a rational explanation for it, we could accept it and mourn. We all understood the risk we accepted when we took the oath of office, that chance might cut short our lives when we placed ourselves in harm’s way in the public’s service. This is what we are paid for and it is our honor.

However, in short, the official explanation of the events of that day are not only insufficient, they are fantastic and cannot bear rational examination. We are asked to believe that on that day three structural steel buildings, which have never before in history collapsed because of fire, fell neatly into their basements at the speed of gravity, their concrete reduced to dust.

We are asked to believe that jet fuel (kerosene) can melt steel. We are asked to believe that the most sophisticated air defense system in the world, that responded to sixty-eight emergencies in the year prior to 9-11 in less than twenty minutes allowed aircraft to wander about for up to an hour and a half. We are asked to believe that the steel and titanium components of an aircraft that supposedly hit the Pentagon “evaporated”.

There is much, much more if anyone cares to look into it. Trade Tower #7 by itself is the “smoking gun”. Not hit by an aircraft, with only a few relatively small fires, it came down in a classic crimp and implosion, going straight into its basement, something only very precise demolition can accomplish, which takes days if not weeks to prepare.

The 9-11 Commission didn’t even mention it, and F.E.M.A. actually stated they DIDN’T KNOW WHY IT COLLAPSED AND LEFT IT AT THAT. Brothers, I know that the implications of the above are hard, almost unthinkable, but the official explanation is utter nonsense, and three hundred and forty three murdered brothers are crying out for justice.

Demand a genuine investigation into the events of September 11!"

AE911Truth Gets Canadian News Coverage (2/19/10)

Twelve New Hampshire Towns Demand 9/11 Reinvestigation

A new movement to reinvestigate the 9/11 attacks is gaining pace in the US. With major public support, 12 towns are set to decide whether to ask the federal government for a new independent probe.

New York is dubbed as the Empire State for its wealth and resources and is rightfully regarded as America’s most famous city, a beacon of fashion, finance and fast paced action.

New Hampshire is the Granite State of so-called self sufficiency. Less flash and cash, most famous for hosting the first U.S. presidential primary.

New York and New Hampshire are more than 200 miles apart, but for all that distance, the two US locations intersect on one issue: the 9/11 attacks. While it was in Manhattan where three buildings fell, the people of Keene, New Hampshire are pushing for a new probe to find out why.

A Truther's Creed*

* With a special thanks to KEVIN BARRETT - whose words were shamelessly lifted and shuffled with additions and subtractions.

“I am very happy when I hear people in the 9/11 truth movement saying kind things about each other. The way I see it, the 9/11 truth movement is like a family. We have our quarrels and our differences, and we definitely have a weird uncle or two.

But when Bush comes to shove (sorry for the pun), we need to stick together - especially when we're under attack by outsiders - which is pretty much all the time. We can make it clear that we don't agree with our weird uncle on everything, without trying to humiliate and drum him out of the family.

Social scientists know that the most important factor in making any group successful is that when people feel like family, and work toward a common goal, they succeed. When they fall into factions and quarreling, they fail. It really is that simple.

The worst way a group can fall apart is when it starts scapegoating its own members - rather than attacking the outside “anti-truth enemy.” It is important that we treat the whole 9/11 truth movement like our family.

Most of the issues that pro-Truthers quarrel over are relatively unimportant compared to the supreme importance of promoting “family” unity. The mistaken notion that a weird uncle (or two) - who may pursue even controversial agendas and make some mistakes is a mortally-threatening PR problem.

This has led some sincere activists to waste time and energy in very destructive infighting about issues that don't matter much in the long run - with profoundly destructive effects on the unity and family-feeling aspects of the 9/11 truth movement.

If there are disinformation agents among us, their job it is to promote conflict, incite witch-hunts against people in the 9/11 truth community, and generally try to paint us as nuts. Never help them do their job.

Instead of insisting within our group for "the one correct answer," - we need to consider that a divergent way of thinking may actually make us stronger and more effective in the real-world difficulties of spreading the Truth to all of those "divergent" other peoples.

To fully honor and accept the differences among us will make us stronger and help to build the feeling of unity that will bring us victory. We simply need to treat each other like family - regardless of any other factors that divide us.

I hereby declare that all of you who are sincerely working for 9/11 Truth - are now and will always be like family to me.”

There are many paid disinformation agents and critical amateurs "out there." Their job it is to promote conflict, incite witch-hunts against people in the 9/11 truth community, and generally try to paint us as nuts.

Let's not help them do their job, eh?

A fellow Truther needs to be treated kindly and with respect - ALWAYS - no matter what.

If we don't take care of ourselves - nobody else will. 9/11 Truth can be a tough sell and we expect to be attacked from outside - but not inside - our respective groups.
