The Lies of 9/11 Miracle Workers: A Review of David Ray Griffin’s Bush And Cheney: How They Ruined America And The World

 

“America’s fate was sealed when the public and the anti-war movement bought the government’s 9/11 conspiracy theory.  The government’s account of 9/11 is contradicted by much evidence.  Nevertheless, this defining event of our time, which has launched the US on interminable wars of aggression and a domestic police state, is a taboo subject for investigation in the media.  It is pointless to complain of war and a police state when one accepts the premise upon which they are based.”

Paul Craig Roberts, How America Was Lost

 

David Ray Griffin is an international treasure and truth teller, who, while being ignored by the mainstream corporate media (MSM) for his extraordinary series of books exposing the false flag attacks of September 11, 2001, will someday be lauded as a modern prophet.  To those who know and have studied his work, he is an inspiration for his persistent insistence in a dozen books since 2004 that the truth about the US treachery of that infamous day is essential for understanding the violence, planned by neo-conservatives and embraced by neo-liberals, that the United States has subsequently inflicted on the world. He has consistently argued that to believe in the government’s explanation for 9/11, one has to reject logic, scholarship, and the basic laws of modern science.

Bush And Cheney: How They Ruined America And The World is Griffin’s latest, and probably last, effort to reach those people who, out of fear, ignorance, or laziness, have walled themselves into a cyclopean labyrinth of denial about the defining event of our time.  Without the clarifying truth about the attacks of September 11, 2001, there will be no exit from the continuing nightmare the world is experiencing.

If you are reading this review, you are probably not one of those people Griffin is trying to reach.  Ay, there’s the rub!  As the title of his book suggests, he is using reversed logic to try and reach those who have accepted the official fiction that is The 9/11 Commission Report (No doubt without having read it. Outside of serious researchers, I have never met a person who has, except for some of my students) and all the antecedent and subsequent government and MSM propaganda.

To this end, the first three-quarters of the book is devoted to the “destructive transformations of America and the world as a whole” that were initiated and justified by 9/11, many of which have been accepted by innumerable people as being based on government lies, most notably the war against Iraq.  Griffin’s hope is that if he can convince skeptical readers that the government would lie about Iraq, Libya, Ukraine, Syria, Yemen, etc., resulting in the deaths and maiming of millions of innocent people and the destruction of their countries, it would also lie about the attacks of September 11 that “legitimized” such carnage and the ongoing shredding of the US Constitution.

The Will to Examine Miracles?

It’s an ingenuous and compelling method, culminating with his concluding section on “15 major miracles” of 9/11, by which he means “violations of the laws of nature” in the strictest scientific sense.  Astutely logical, deeply sourced, and scientifically compelling, the book’s conclusion can only be rejected by one adamantly closed to accepting the ugly truth about the US government and its media accomplices.

But getting skeptical people to read the book is the trick.  I think that is very hard but much easier than to get the MSM to do so and give it a fair shake.  People have friends whom they trust, and sometimes friends can convince friends to at least take a look. Speaking of the MSM, Griffin puts it thus:

“However, while granting that the Bush-Cheney administration told big and
disastrous lies, which led to millions of deaths, most mainstream commentators
have considered the idea that this administration engineered the 9/11 attack
to be so absurd that they can render judgment without checking the evidence.”

“Judging without checking the evidence” is the job of the MSM, who are stenographers for the government, but regular people might be persuaded to check the evidence before reaching a conclusion, if they can be led to that assessment one logical step after another.  One can even hope that left-wing alternative media critics of the government, many of whom avoid this issue like the plague, might find the courage to reassess their anti-scientific denials in light of Griffin’s work.  After all, “the laws of physics don’t lie,” and logical reasoning has generally been a strength of many dissenters, especially those well-skilled in the art of disputation.

The Birth of the Tangled Web

Griffin is a master logician, so he begins with the obvious fact that the Bush-Cheney administration failed to prevent 9/11 and therefore failed to keep America safe that day, as Donald Trump said in a 2016 election debate, for which he was castigated by his opponents and the media.  But he was right; it is a fact, whatever Bush-Cheney’s deceptive excuses. As a result of those attacks, the US attacked Afghanistan, claiming that was because Osama bin Laden orchestrated the attacks from that country.  No evidence of bin Laden’s guilt was ever presented, though Colin Powell initially said it would be shortly forthcoming (he quickly reneged on the promise). The invasion of Afghanistan, planned well in advance of 9/11, was the start of the war on terror that’s been going on for 16 years with no end in sight.  A 16-year-old war based on no evidence, just lies.  Griffin shows how the alleged “evidence” that was eventually produced – the bin Laden videos – were fraudulent; that they were indeed “produced,” and not by bin Laden; they were “bogus” according to Professor Bruce Lawrence of Duke University, the leading academic expert on bin Laden.  And the FBI reported that it had “no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.”  But the administration and the media sang of bin Laden’s guilt in unison.  The public, beaten down in fear and trembling, accepted the claim as a fact, as they were further traumatized by additional lies about the anthrax attacks that are a key component of the entire propaganda campaign of fear and intimidation that resulted in The Patriot Act.  (Graeme MacQueen’s masterful analysis, The 2001 Anthrax Deception, should be required reading; for he shows how the often forgotten anthrax attacks are intimately linked to those of September 11 and when studied closely, prove that 9/11 was an inside job.)

So Griffin begins with the lie about bin Laden that led to the lie about Afghanistan that led to the illegal and immoral and ongoing war against Afghanistan and all the millions of deaths and destruction that have ensued.

So knowing how lie leads on to lie, let us count some of the lies that followed.  Griffin documents these in deeply sourced details, but I will list them concisely:

US Government Lies Subsequent to the 9/11 Attacks:

  • That the 9/11 attacks were surprises, a “New Pearl Harbor.”
  • That there was solid evidence for bin Laden’s guilt.
  • That the invasion of Afghanistan (and Pakistan) was therefore justified.
  • That the “war on terror” and therefore The Patriot Act were necessary.
  • That Saddam Hussein was connected to 9/11, was developing nuclear weapons, and had weapons of mass destruction
  • That the attacks on Muslim countries were not based on Islamophobia
  • That the chaos and destruction unleashed throughout the Middle East were not pre-planned and intentional.
  • That the Obama administration’s attack on Libya was a humanitarian response to the “madman” Gaddafi, who adopted a rape policy fueled by Viagra drugged troops ready to unleash a blood bath.
  • That the war against Syria was not a CIA-instigated plan to overthrow Assad under the guise of “liberating” the Syrian people.
  • That the jihadists in Syria, including ISIS, were not armed and supported by the US, with many of those arms being shipped out of Benghazi, Libya, under the direction of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, General David Petraeus, and Chris Stevens, the US ambassador to Libya.
  • That the Syrian “White Helmets” are independent volunteer do-gooders, not a propaganda outfit funded by the US and UK governments.
  • That the wars against Muslim countries throughout the Greater Middle East are not connected to the Israeli occupation of Palestine and serve as American support for Israel’s agenda in the region.
  • That drone killings are legal and morally justified.
  • That the US Constitution has not been shredded.
  • That the coup d’état in Ukraine was not a US operation as part of a continuing US aggression toward Russia and a growing threat of a nuclear annihilation.
  • That the US buildup of military forces along Russia’s western borders and the massive transfer of US Naval forces to China’s east are not US acts of aggression making nuclear war more likely, but are acts of self-defense.
  • That the threat of ecological holocaust is not connected to a 770 billion dollar “defense” budget, a trillion dollar nuclear weapons modernization program, and US wars against countries containing vast amounts of fossil fuels and rare minerals.

That is only a sample of the lies that Griffin uses to lead the reader back to 9/11, the alleged reason for the death and destruction justified by such lies.  If the US government would lie in all these ways, he is saying, why would they not have lied with the Big Lie that started this string of destructive deceptions.

September 11, 2001

Thus the last section of the book (a little more than 25%) is devoted to “9/11: A Miraculous Day.”  Herein he explains why George W. Bush and Dick Cheney should not be trusted on 9/11. They did not want an investigation into the September 11 attacks; wanted the public to just trust them.  They were eventually forced into an investigation by public pressure; originally named Henry Kissinger to head it (don’t laugh – ha! ha!); rigged its makeup and had Philip Zelikow, arch neo-con and Bush insider, appointed its Executive Director.  In short, they did everything possible to prevent an honest investigation.  And we know that the result was The 9/11 Commission Report that is a piece of legerdemain on a par with The Warren Commission Report. In other words, a cover-up

Griffin shows that “Bush and Cheney lied about their activities on 9/11” and that their relationship to the subsequent anthrax attacks, a key motivator for The Patriot Act and “the war on terror,” suggest that their administration was the source of those attacks and therefore the 9/11 attacks. (see Graeme MacQueen’s The 2001 Anthrax Deception). Griffin further notes how declassified official accounts refute “central features of the Bush-Cheney account of 9/11.”

And then – the coup de grace – he shows how the official account of 9/11 depends on “miracle stories.”  Yet, “a look at the evidence shows that many people who accept science on tobacco, evolution, and global warming, accept miracles, implicitly, on the subject of 9/11, especially in relationship to the World Trade Center (WTC).”  Herein lies the great stumbling block to convincing people of the truth of 9/11. Science, logic, careful reasoning, evidence, documentation, what you can observe with your own eyes, etc. – none of this matters when you are intent on being deceived (or pretending to be) because of the implications of examining the evidence and reaching conclusions that are deeply disturbing to your world view, ideology, or sense of self.  To admit that you have believed a pack of lies for years is very difficult to accept.  But regular people of good will can do so.  These are the people Griffin is trying to reach.  To convince those who have for years publicly and professionally dismissed those who have questioned the official version of 9/11 as conspiracy nuts is probably an impossible task.  To convince the MSM that have worked hand-in-glove with the government to conceal the truth is preposterous.  To convince those fine people who are devoted to truth in other areas to reconsider their positions on this core issue is conceivable.  Surely the world is full of weird events that logic and science cannot explain. But when the defining event of recent history that has resulted in the world teetering on the edge of final destruction is explained by at least the following 15 miracles that Griffin lists, only a delusional person or one whose will to untruth is set in stone would not be moved to ask how these could be possible, and draw the obvious conclusions.

 A Miraculous Precedent: The Assassination of JFK

I am reminded of that other foundational case in modern American history: the CIA-directed assassination of JFK.  Dan Rather, the famous CBS news anchor, was in Dallas that day, and after seeing the Zapruder film (which was then kept from the American public for a decade), went on television to say that when the president was shot in the head he violently lurched forward, clearly implying that the shot came from Oswald from the rear.  Of course once the public was able to see the film, it was obvious to anyone with eyes that he was violently thrown back and to his left, therefore having been shot from his front right, not by Oswald. Bingo: a conspiracy.  Then in 2012, another famous TV personality, Bill O’Reilly wrote a book called Killing Kennedy in which he claims that he and his co-author watched the Zapruder film “time after time to understand the sequence of events,” but still concluded that The Warren Commission was correct and that Oswald shot Kennedy from behind despite the obvious visual evidence to the contrary.  Miracles then, miracles now – they seem to define the two key events of modern American history for those wanting to obfuscate the truth.

Do you believe in miracles?

Here is a Summation of Griffin’s 15 Major Miracles:

  1. The Twin Towers and WTC 7 were the only steel-framed high-rise buildings ever to come down without explosives or incendiaries.
  2. The Twin Towers, each of which had 287 steel columns, were brought down solely by a combination of airplane strikes and jet-fuel fires.
  3. WTC 7 was not even hit by a plane, so it was the first steel-framed high-rise to be brought down solely by ordinary building fires.
  4. These World Trade Center buildings also came down in free fall – the Twin Towers in virtual free fall, WTC 7 in absolute free fall – for over two seconds.
  5. Although the collapses of the of the WTC buildings were not aided by explosives, the collapses imitated the kinds of implosions that can be induced only by demolition companies.
  6. In the case of WTC 7, the structure came down symmetrically (straight down, with an almost perfectly horizontal roofline), which meant that all 82 of the steel support columns had to fall simultaneously, although the building’s fires had a very asymmetrical pattern.
  7. The South Tower’s upper 30-floor block changed its angular momentum in midair.
  8. This 30 floor block then disintegrated in midair.
  9. With regard to the North Tower, some of its steel columns were ejected out horizontally for at least 500 feet.
  10. The fires in the debris from the WTC buildings could not be extinguished for many months.
  11. Although the WTC fires, based on ordinary building fires, could not have produced temperatures above 1,800℉, the fires inexplicably melted metals with much higher melting points, such as iron (2,800℉) and even molybdenum (4,753℉).
  12. Some of the steel in the debris had been sulfidized, resulting in Swiss-cheese-appearing steel, even though ordinary building fires could not have resulted in the sulfidation.
  13. As a passenger on AA Flight 77, Barbara Olson called her husband, telling him about hijackers on her plane, even though this plane had no onboard phones and its altitude was too high for a cell phone call to get through.
  14. Hijacker pilot Hani Hanjour could not possibly have flown the trajectory of AA 77 to strike Wedge 1 of the Pentagon, and yet he did.
  15. Besides going through an unbelievable personal transformation, ringleader Mohamed Atta also underwent an impossible physical transformation.

Griffin examines each of these “miracles” in detail.  Taken together, they reduce the official explanation of 9/11 to a story told to credulous children who are afraid of the dark.  One can only hope that Americans are ready to grow up and accept that the bogeyman is real and that he is out to devour them and the rest of the world if they don’t awaken from their hypnotic sleep.

The Overwhelming Consensus of Experts

It is important to note that David Ray Griffin is not alone in his assessment that 9/11 was an inside job done to legitimize disastrous policies at home and abroad.  There are thousands of scholars, religious leaders, scientists, engineers, airline pilots, firefighters and countless others who agree with him after studying the evidence. Griffin names many of these experts in his conclusion.  And they are not afraid of the absurd way the government and media accuse them of being “conspiracy theorists,” since they know “as Lance deHaven-Smith explained in his book Conspiracy Theory in America, [that] the CIA started using ‘conspiracy theory’ as a pejorative term in 1964 [sic] to ridicule the growing belief, contrary to the Warren Report, that President Kennedy was killed by people within the US government, including the CIA itself.”  Thoughtful people know, and the evidence has long proven, that the US government is guilty of an extensive list of conspiracies, ranging from the alleged Gulf of Tonkin attack to its conspiracy to convince the American people that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and extending back through many CIA-engineered coup d’états, the assassinations of JFK, Malcolm X, MLK, RFK, etc.  The name calling has lost its sting when the documentary records confirm that the name callers are the conspirators.

So if you care about truth, your country, and the world; if you hate to be lied to; if you care about the victims of American violence everywhere – you should read Bush And Cheney: How They Ruined America And The World. It is a brave and brilliant book. Look at the evidence. Show others.  Pass the book on. Give it as a gift.

And tip your hat to David Ray Griffin, a truth teller extraordinaire, who for thirteen years has been asking us to wake out of the hypnotic state of denial that has allowed the liars to bring the world to the edge of destruction.  Griffin’s persistence is the sign of hope we all need to join him in the fight against these unspeakable forces of evil.

  1. Very well done! You might complement David’s analysis with the research in AMERICA NUKED ON 9/11 (2017), which includes contributions by 15 experts on various aspects of 9/11 and delves more extensively into the faking of all four “crash sites”, the differences between the methods by means of which the Twin Towers were destroyed vs. WTC-7, and who was responsible and why. The book’s available at moonrockbooks.com, but send me your address and I will have a review copy sent to you. Thanks!

  2. My brother senior FDNY Hazmat specialist first responsder at 9/11 who I think might be a “tad” more qualified than some of the armchair commentators from afar does not agree with anyone of the “15” points of griffin and, by the way, neither does any other fireman who was on site. He has personally spoken to all chiefs during ensuing years none of whom think there was any evidence to support any theory other than official one. But what do they know they were all there for many weeks. He has also called quite a few of the scientists likely on griffin’s list able to persuade them of their error. Do you really imagine in your fevered brain that our NY uniformed employees would be involved in suppression of evidence ? Fighting words Mr. Curtin completely insulting. These men are and rightly so are furious at these claims. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    1. Donna, Thank you for your passionate and loving defense of the FDNY and all uniformed officers. I too feel passionately about 9/11 and am not ashamed in what I wrote. My grandfather was the Deputy Chief of the Fire Department, my other grandfather a NYC policemen, my niece and her husband NYC detectives (he was on-site from the start); I am a native New Yorker with very deep and extensive roots in both departments; my son-in-law worked in the south tower; I have friends who died that day – and I don’t write off-the-cuff. I respect your brother for his work, but have to disagree. There is an extensive oral record of firemen and first responders claiming they heard explosions throughout the buildings. Griffin quotes many leading FDNY officials to support his position. He marshals extensive evidence to back them up. I hope you read his book. Perhaps you would ask your brother how he explains the symmetrical collapse of WTC 7 at 5:20 PM in free-fall speed into its own footprint with only a few fires and never having been hit by an airplane. I could say much more on the matter, but want you to know that I care as much as you do, and believe the factual evidence of that day supports Griffin’s very detailed study.
      Rather than suppress evidence, so many NY uniformed employees have testified to what Griffin says. Best wishes.

  3. Paul Craig Roberts: “America’s fate was sealed when the public and the anti-war movement bought the government’s 9/11 conspiracy theory….”

    America’s fate was sealed in 1787 when the constitutional framers replaced the 17th-century Colonial governments of, by, and for God expressly established upon His immutable/unchanging moral law for their own humanistic governments of, by, and for the people based upon capricious man-made Enlightenment and Masonic traditions.

    What we witnessed on 9/11, before and since, are merely the consequences of the whirlwind today’s America is reaping as a result of the wind sown by the 18th-century founding fathers:

    “[B]ecause they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law … they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind….” (Hosea 8:1, 7)

    For more regarding these two polar opposite forms of government, google Chapter 3 “The Preamble: WE THE PEOPLE vs. YAHWEH” of free online book “Bible Law vs, the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective.”

    Then, find out how much you REALLY know about the Constitution as compared to the Bible. Take our 10-question Constitution Survey in the right-hand sidebar and receive a complimentary copy of a book that EXAMINES the Constitution by the Bible.

  4. I’m deeply skeptical of claims 9/11 was a false flag operation, notwithstanding your scientific arguments. The politics of the thing just don’t add up.

    First of all, it happened eight months into a new administration that had won power in the most bitterly contested Presidential election in history. Not only that, the transition in the White House would be from an eight-year Clinton Democratic administration to the Bush Republicans. The transition was full of animosity with little cooperation.

    Yet, you claim that during this time period the US government pulled off the most large scale, elaborate and intricate false flag operation in history and pulled it off almost flawlessly. I can’t believe the Bush administration, with all that was going on politically, was competent enough or organized enough to accomplish such an operation.

    No one has ever intimated that the Clintons engineered the plot. How could they possibly do so thinking they could get away with it undetected with a new, adversarial administration taking over the government in short order being a real possibility.

    This leaves two remaining possibilities. Either the CIA engineered the entire thing on its own despite probability it would be found out by a new, incoming administration, or some secret cabal with power superseding Presidents and administrations carried it out. The former possibility strikes me as extremely improbable. The CIA is capable of intricate mischief, but has its limits with regard to scale. And it still takes direction from higher authorities. Which leaves the latter as the only reasonable probability.

    So, let’s assume a secret cabal of world power brokers approved the 9/11 false flag operation and the CIA and others carried it out flawlessly. In order to do so, these power brokers and the CIA would have to command an extraordinary amount of assets and resources. Their fingers would have to be involved in just about every level of the federal government and bureaucracy, not to mention governments in the Middle East and elsewhere. Moreover, everyone involved in the operation or aware of it would have to maintain secrecy (for the last 17 years).

    Yet, despite all these assets, power and influence, they used Saudi nationals to carry out the plot because they couldn’t find or recruit Iraqi fall guys, or fall guys of another nationality?

    Every other aspect of the supposed plot was planned and controlled down to the last box cutter. So we have to conclude that whatever happened that day was controlled and had a reason to happen.

    So, why use Saudi operatives? Why not operatives with direct ties to Iraq?

    Of course, there is another possibility. It IS possible that the Saudi’s ARE the secret cabal in charge which engineered 9/11. Were the Clintons in bed with the Saudi’s? God knows the Bush’s were and are. Maybe the Saudi’s were displeased with US energy policy? Maybe they foresaw the fracking threat to their oil revenues coming down the pike and were displeased by a lack of US government efforts to stop it. Or maybe, just maybe, they were motivated by their deeply held religious beliefs.

    The most believable scenario to me is not a secret world power cabal, but Saudi opportunism. They were presented the opportunity by a dedicated terrorist mastermind and let the plot go forward, perhaps with some minimal assistance, either money, information or influence. Perhaps, the Saudis trusted their part in the plot would never be found out or pursued because of the influence they carried with the Clinton/Bush White House and Congress.

    At the time, the US government was dependent on the Saudis not only for oil but as a key partner in laundering US petrodollars, maintaining the US dollar position as the world’s reserve currency. In short, the Saudi’s had the US where they wanted it. They knew it. They knew their friends in the US government knew it.

    Maybe the Saudi’s had internal political problems that needed shoring up. Maybe they wanted to play both ends against the middle with regard to Osama Bin Laden’s outspokenness toward them. Maybe they wanted to strike a blow for Islam. Who knows? In any case, they decided to take the opportunity presented to them.

    And for 15 years American politicians dutifully covered the Saudi’s collective ass. They are still trying.

    All this makes more sense to me than some huge, elaborate false flag operation to pass the Patriot Act/invade Iraq. The US government didn’t need to blow up the Twin Towers to get that done, especially after Bush was declared President. A far smaller, more manageable incident could have been engineered. The Patriot Act/Iraq invasion would have happened in due course without any risk of a false flag operation being discovered.

    If the US government is guilty of anything with regard to 9/11 it is guilty of pimping the Saudis as good guys.

    1. Sherman,
      Could the Saudis have wired the buildings, including WTC 7 that housed the CIA, with explosives? Could the Saudis have forced all 16 US intelligence agencies to have failed? Could the Saudis have made sure airport security failed in four cases on one day? Could the Saudis have sent the anthrax that originated from a US lab and then make sure the FBI refused to properly investigate? Etc.etc. Griffin has in this book and others clearly shown that 9/11 had to have been an inside job? Have you read his many books on the subject? His case is very, very solid.
      Ed

    2. Sherman,
      You may be interested in listening to the Corbett Report episode #209, “Hunting the Octopus”. Your comment about that the CIA would have to have its fingers involved in just about every level of federal government and bureaucracy made me think of that podcast. You may not find it interesting, but you might.

  5. You did a tremendous job of breaking this great book down.

    I would note that you said that one day Griffin will be lauded as a prophet. I wonder. The collapse of America seems inevitable, and on the way all true history is being destroyed by the liberal idiots. Book burnings don’t seem far away. Perhaps we’ll be like the Hittites– evidence that we once existed, but darn little evidence of our lives.

  6. Regarding Sherman Broder’s comments –

    Sherman, I appreciate your ideas as to what might have prompted the 9/11 event. The truth movement in general has a great many ideas also, along with many questions and suppositions. Of recent time the movement has learned to refine its message to hard factual and forensic evidence which indicates a new investigation is necessary to determine what really happened on the sad day, and also to hopefully determine what suppositions are actually real.

    The vast evidence indicates we have not been told the truth, and in my view that reality is what everyone needs to focus on and put their energy towards.

    David Ray Griffin is stellar in keeping his logic focused on factual information, and that makes his bountiful work on this topic worth looking at.

  7. The smoking gun of government lying IMO is not any of these. It’s right in the NIST report. Their silly floor truss theory. A theory that depends on hot, soft, light weight floor trusses pulling in the structures that are holding the building up.

    It doesn’t work. The floor trusses only held up the floors. Their failure even a cascading one (unlikely) results in standing building with hollow cavity.

    I don’t know who did what or say I know how the buildings came down or any of that. I know one thing. NIST is either lying or they’re idiots.

    Building 7 is even easier. Look at WTC 3,4,5, and 6. Now explain why 7 is different. There is none that matches the fire and impact theory.

  8. I think there should now be a move from trying to explain what really happened – to it happened and what can we do with the knowledge. Trying to convince others is fine but when the television is spouting the opposite 24/7 you’re fighting a losing battle, or flogging a dead horse. There needs to be a new level of approach by those who see what happened. A play needs to be created that will begin in the fringe theatres and soon spread to Broadway. The buildings were demolished – and now what do we do.

    1. Jack,

      The idea of a play is terrific. Literature is a powerful medium, especially the theatre. But I think losing battles can turn into winning ones, sometimes, so many of us will continue to try to convince the doubters through articles, etc. as well. Ed

      1. “I think losing battles can turn into winning ones” this is very positive and music to my ears. I see that it is true. That things come around. My thought is though, that, as a friend said at art school, people just don’t care. There is this thing that what you’re pushing, though it is truth, is not what the people want to hear. People are changing all the time, those at the 68 protests exist today but in a minority. The majority are hooked so far into the system that they cannot even hear what you are saying let alone take it in. Kanya West begins to speak in breakdown terms of a system in lockdown. Yet is quickly labelled ill and very tired – a mental breakdown say the MSM.

        Your writing is very clear and to the point – imagine if you were allowed to go mainstream – keep it up. Thanks.
