More 9/11 Truth

CNN is running a story about a protester at a Fred Thompson event who was forced out after telling Thompson he wasn’t ‘a real conservative.’ What CNN neglects to mention, in fact omits from it’s story and edits from the corresponding video, is that the woman ejected from the Thompson event wasn’t a ‘conservative.’ In fact, the female who was asking the questions was a member of ‘Houston 9/11 Truth’ and was removed only after screaming ‘what about building 7?’ and ‘9/11 was an inside job.’ Watch the raw video of the event and see what CNN edited out.

Why would CNN cut out the 9/11 conspiracy comments? Clearly, they had access to the same footage I did so why did I have to discover this on my own? This looks like a blatant attempt by CNN to make Fred Thompson look bad.

When 7 World trade Center collapsed in the aftermath of the Sept.
11 attacks, Verizon’s neighboring 140 West St. central office suffered
massive structural damage. Equipment was destroyed, access lines were
severed and millions of gallons of water flooded the building’s
sublevels. But Verizon’s employees stood firm, and within hours,
restoration efforts were under way. A report from Ground Zero on the
story of a company and its people put to the ultimate test.

Famulare immediately called 911. He soon experienced his second major shock: Verizon’s fire safety director had jumped the gun — and seemingly overstepped his authority — by calling for an evacuation of 140 West St. Thinking, “We don’t do that,” Famulare immediately had the call rescinded and went about calming co-workers and shepherding them back into the building.

High-level Verizon exec. is ex-official who long-argued for more surveillance

Telecom Industry’s Ties to US Intelligence

A history of arguing for surveillance

On June 12, 1995, Barr testified before the House Judiciary Committee in support of a piece of legislation called “The Comprehensive Antiterrorism Act of 1995”, which amended various sections of the U.S. Penal Code to extend law enforcement capabilities and increase criminal penalties in cases of terrorism. Part of the act authorized the use of emergency and roving wiretaps in cases of criminal conspiracy.

Barr’s testimony explicitly endorsed both modes of surveillance.

Barr’s testimony was cited in the official congressional record as justification for the elimination of a subsection of the penal code that exempted First Amendment-protected activities from these sorts of legal intrusions.

When she could suddenly no longer log in to her Verizon email, she called them up and found out that she was way overdue.

Airfone drops price for in-flight call after terrorism

OAK BROOK, Ill. — Following a sharp decrease in business after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, GTE Airfone is temporarily discounting its air to ground phone service.

The discount is already in effect, and per-minute calling rates for direct-dial domestic voice calls made from airlines using Airfone are now 99 cents. The one-time initial charge for such calls also has dropped to 99 cents. The standard rate was $3.99 for the connection fee and $3.99 per minute.

“We appreciate the unique challenges the airlines are facing as a result of these terrorists, and we want to help our partners in any way we can,” said Airfone President Bill Pallone. “We hope these low rates provide an extra benefit to air travelers as more passengers begin to return to the sky.”

Airline partners

Airfone’s domestic commercial airline partners include United, Continental, Delta, USAirways, American, Midwest Express and Air Wisconsin. The new low rates began at Friday, Sept. 21 and will end at 11:59 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5. In addition, there will be no charge for any domestic call that was placed on the Airfone system on Sept. 11.

GTE Airfone, a subsidiary of Verizon Communications, began offering commercial service in 1985, with the introduction of the first cordless air-to-ground telephone system. The first seatback telephone was installed by Airfone in 1987, and the company deployed a nationwide, end-to-end digital system starting in 1993.

Now, 62% of U.S.-based commercial passenger aircraft are installed with Airfone service. Airfone’s airline partners include: Air Wisconsin Airlines; American Airlines; Continental Airlines; Delta Air Lines; Midwest Express Airlines; United Airlines; USAirways; AeroMexico; Air Canada; Air Nova; Bell Mobility; Mexicana Airlines; Air France, Alitalia; All Nippon Airways; British Airways; Cathay Pacific Airways; China Southern Airways; Crossair; Lufthansa; Thai Airways; Turkish Airlines; and Varig.

Verizon companies are the largest providers of wireline and wireless communications in the United States, with 125 million access line equivalents and approximately 28 million wireless customers.

From Brooks Brother Rioter to Judge

Monica Goodling says she was given the green light to hire immigration judges based on their political qualifications. So how’d that happen? And who’s been getting the gig?

As a story in The Legal Times last year explained, immigration judges are different from other federal judges in that they’re civil service employees — meaning that there’s a formal application process with the Justice Department’s Executive Office of Immigration Review.

Palast has the goods on Goodling’s testimony

It appears to me that the MSM is involved in a cover up for not reporting real news in the DOJ scandal.
It also appears that those questioning Monica Goodling either didn’t know what to look for or they just don’t know how to question.
The Bush-Cheney operatives sent hundreds of thousands of letters marked “Do not forward” to voters’ homes. Letters returned (“caged”) were used as evidence to block these voters’ right to cast a ballot on grounds they were registered at phony addresses. Who were the evil fakers? Homeless men, students on vacation and — you got to love this — American soldiers. Oh yeah: most of them are Black voters.
