Call me a paranoid conspiracy theorist, but…well, sometimes it seems like the powers that be are making things a little extra hard for people who organize 9/11 truth events.
Last Thursday’s film and $1,000 Debate Challenge at the University of Wisconsin-Madison drew a good crowd. That was pretty amazing, since the time and date – Thursday, Sept. 8th, 7 pm – also happened to be the exact time and date chosen for:
* The second most important entity in the world (the President of the USA)’s prime-time speech to the American people;
* The most important entity in the world (the Green Bay Packers’) first kickoff of the season, which also happened to be the nationwide NFL season opener.
So the thousands of professors who turned down our offer of $1,000 just to show up and defend the official story of 9/11 had a good excuse: They had to stay home and watch the Packers and/or the President.
We chose the date and time for our 9/11 truth event way back in April. Did the Executive Branch and the NFL then decide to schedule their events at the exact same date and time in hopes of diverting attention from our event? It certainly seems unlikely.
Today at the Minnesota state capitol, the powers-that-be, in the person of Gov. Mark Dayton (who knows the 9/11 Report is a pack of treasonous lies) chose to schedule their official celebration of the 9/11 Big Lie on the capitol steps…thereby blocking access to the capitol, and preventing many people from attending the 9/11 truth event in the capitol rotunda.
“They were supposed to leave an access corridor so people could walk up the capitol steps and enter the rotunda,” explained Michael Andregg, a Twin Cities peace and truth leader. Andregg said he didn’t know why the organizers of the Big Lie Celebration had chosen to completely block access to the rotunda and the officially-permitted 9/11 truth event inside.
In fact, I was still able to enter the rotunda, as were others, by ducking under the ropes that were intended to bar access to our event. Enough people figured out how to enter, by ducking under or going around to the back entrance, to fill the rotunda, take up all the available seating, and make it a standing-room-only success. But others did not figure out how to get into the building.
It was a rip-roaring event in any case, with a terrific introduction by emcee Bruce Stahlberg, great music by Diane Steen-Hinderlie, Rick Bernardo, and Gina Citoli, and blazing, impassioned speeches by Jim Fetzer, Farheem Hakeem, Mike Palacek, Mike Cavlan, Mark Novitsky and yours truly. I was blown away by all the talks and performances, but above all by Mike Palacek’s, which summed up the state of the union on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 more perfectly than I could have imagined possible. I will try to get hold of a text or video of that talk, which deserves the widest possible audience.
Thank you, Minnesota 9/11 Truth! The powers-that-be may block our way, but we’ll just keep finding a way around them.
