18 Years of Cover-up, and Loss of Liberty Since the 9-11 False Flag

Excerpted from his web site:

The Official Story of the Collapse of WTC Building 7 Lies in Ruins

Paul Craig Roberts

A research team at the University of Alaska’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, led by Dr. Leroy Hulsey, Dr. Zhili Quan, and Professor Feng Xiao, Department of Civil Engineering, Nanjing University of Science and Technology, released yesterday for public comment their findings from a four-year study of the

collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 on September 11, 2001.  This is the first scientific investigation of the collapse of the building.   Here is the conclusion:

“The principal conclusion of our study is that fire did not cause the collapse of WTC 7 on 9/11, contrary to the conclusions of NIST and private engineering firms that studied the collapse. The secondary conclusion of our study is that the collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building.”

Notice three things: (1) it has taken 18 years to get a real investigation of the destruction of a building blamed on Muslim terrorists, (2) the only way “near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building” can occur is through controlled demolition, and (3) this remarkable finding is not reported in the presstitute media.

In other words, the study is assigned to the Memory Hole.  This is the way The Matrix operates…

Roberts also qotes from a resolution by the Franklin Square and Munson Fire Department (from Franklin Square, NY) on the false flag implications of this evidence:

…the Board of Fire Commissioners of the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District recognizes the significant and compelling nature of the petition before the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York reporting un-prosecuted federal crimes at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, and calling upon the United States Attorney to present that petition to a Special Grand Jury pursuant to the United States Constitution and 18 U.S.C. SS 3332(A);

Whereas, the overwhelming evidence presented in said petition demonstrates beyond any doubt that pre-planted explosives and/or incendiaries—not just airplanes and the ensuing fires—caused the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings, killing the vast majority of the victims who perished that day…

LP of Queens Passes Solidarity Motion Concerning the Queens Libertarians

Note: The Queens LP, the county’s currently chartered Libertarian chapter of LPNY under chair Michael Arcati, approved a “solidarity” motion in late July that puts both it and the Queens Libertarians on the same page going forward concerning the controversies of the last decade. The motion (advocated for by QL members John Clifton and Sam Sloan, who attended the meeting and vote) officially expresses support and respect for the decades of work and activism of the Queens Libertarians (previously LPQC) prior to our 25th anniversary in October 2019, and revives the complaint LPQC made about disputed actions of the state committee against the previous chapter, by pointing out the issue was never properly resolved.

In turn, our organization now encourages our supporters to choose to join and support the current LP of Queens. QL hopes the positive recognition and accurate summary of our history, embodied in the statement, can allow Queens activists (disaffected by certain actions of a faction of the past LPNY state committee) to turn the page on the events of 2010-2016, that falsely disenfranchised or defamed our members and reputation. We also hope that changes made at the state level (as the party completes its evolution into an offical political party in New York state) will ensure the current motion is supported, and the past exclusion tactics, gaming of the bylaws, or violations of chapter autonomy are not repeated. 

Additional language (not included in the final motion) further clarified the particulars of the concerns of previous Queens members, which read: “Those members held, and hold that the past expulsions of two of their members from LPNY, and the de-chartering of the chapter was not justified, done without real evidence or review, and under a suspect or disputed basis.” The below is the language approved by the chapter on July 30. The Queens Libertarians will more fully discuss the implications of and background behind this matter in the coming days:

LP of Queens—Queens Libertarians Solidarity Statement

1. The LP of Queens respects and supports the past and present activism of the Queens Libertarians (previously the original LPQC) and honors its 25th Anniversary in October 2019. We look forward to their development of a Libertarian Political Action Committee, and have agreed to assist them in correcting any inaccurate Wikipedia entries that described them as an inactive chapter.

2. The LP of Queens acknowledges the view of dozens of past Queens members that the complaint or dispute the previous LPQC had with certain members of the LPNY State Committee was never properly or constructively resolved, which caused disruption of activism in Queens for much of the past decade, and currently.

3. As per a 2017 petition that dozens of LPQC members signed, the LP of Queens recommends the state committee seek to resolve the complaint or dispute with Queens Libertarians with positive and constructive actions, and to respect chapter autonomy. We note that Libertarians in Queens, old and new, will continue to raise these matters until they are resolved. The Queens Libertarians formally recognizes the LP of Queens county committee as the officially chartered affiliate of LPNY.

NY State Ends Religious Exemption for Vaccinations

Note: This. Is. Not. Freedom. The issue is not supporting or opposing vaccination (although there are over one hundred peer-reviewed studies documenting adverse health outcomes resulting from the current schedule or make up of vaccines). The issue is one of forced mass vaccination, with no (or fewer) allowances for families to choose a natural immune health approach to maintain wellness. Being forcibly drugged is not health freedom.

On Thursday, the New York state legislature passed and New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed into law legislation (S2994A) eliminating the religious exemption parents in the state have been able to exercise to refuse state-mandated vaccinations for their children as a condition for their children attending school. This legal change leaves parents with only a narrow medical exemption given that New York had already barred use of a philosophical exemption.

The legislation will even affect many children attending private schools.

In 2015, California similarly eliminated the ability of parents to claim any exemption to vaccinations other than a medical exemption. I wrote about that legal change in articles here and here. Now there is a move in the California legislature to drastically curtail the ability of parents to obtain medical exemptions for their children.

NYC Eliminates Jail Phone Call Fees

Even de Blasio, like a broken clock, is right twice a day. Reposted from the Ron Paul Institute:

Last week, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the city had eliminated charges for phone calls made by inmates in city jails. Karen Matthews of the Associated Press reported that New York City, with this elimination of fees that had been 50 cents for the first minute and five cents for each additional minute, is the first major American city to eliminate inmates’ phone call fees.

This is a welcome move against what I described in an October of 2013 Ron Paul Institute article as “phone system monopolies that charge inmates’ families and friends exorbitant rates to communicate with their incarcerated loved ones.”

New York City is not alone in rolling back or eliminating the phone call fees. In August, for example, the Texas prison system voted to implement an over 75 percent reduction in phone call fees for Texas inmates.

De Blasio, quoted in Matthew’s Associated Press article, succinctly describes some of the benefit of eliminating the fees, stating that making the phone calls free will ensure “people in custody have the opportunity to remain connected to their lawyers, families and support networks that are so crucial to re-entry into one’s community.”
