Hey, Chris Matthews: 9/11 Truthers are NOT left wing Birthers!

E-mail Print PDF
On his MSNBC program Hardball this evening, Chris Matthews went on a well-founded  tirade against Donald Trump and his pandering to the uninformed, right wing Birthers who insist, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that Barack Obama is not an American.. Sadly, in doing so, he emerged once again as a gate keeper extraordinaire who trivializes and ridicules the near decade of research and discovery by members of the  9/11 Truth Movement.  

In his attack against Donald Trump’s strategy of luring extreme right wing voters to back his possible run for president, Matthews claimed there was no difference between “Birthers” on the right and “Truthers’ on the left.

Bullcrap, Chris.  Sheer, unadulterated bullcrap.

First, and foremost, the 9/11 Truth Movement is neither uninformed nor political.  It is comprised of people around the globe - from every spectrum of political thought - who refuse to accept the unsubstantiated and seriously flawed official account of the events of 9/11, and who have raised legitimate questions about that account.

Second, those who have spent years seeking TRUTH, are not making accusations about “George Bush blowing up the World Trade Center,” as Matthews suggests. They are raising questions, requesting an impartial inquiry, and challenging a litany of myths that purport to explain the events before, during and after the attack of 9/11.    

Third, the “9/11 Truth Movement” is comprised of millions of intelligent people who believe it is their right to question their government, and who have taken the time to examine the huge amount of evidence that throws a huge cloud over the official narrative offered by an administration that had blatantly lied them into an illegal, immoral and murderous war.

The movement is also supported by thousands of the most educated and accredited people, anywhere.  They include in part: architects, engineers, statesmen and women, pilots and aviation experts, firefighters, law enforcement personnel, physicists, chemists, media professionals, 9/11 families and survivors, military personnel, and medical professionals.

They are not, by any stretch of the imagination, conspiracy theorists or crazies bent on mischief or propaganda.  Bear in mind, Mr. Matthews, that the only conspiracy theory that has been put before the American people and the rest of the world involves a story about 19 young men with box cutters who managed, somehow, under the tutelage of a man living in a cave in Afghanistan, to outwit and outmaneuver the most sophisticated and advanced defense system in history.

And, of course, that same conspiracy theory insists that a THIRD building in the Trade Center Complex – Tower 7 – came down later in the afternoon of that fateful day, in the exact same planned demolition style of Towers 1 and 2,  without having been hit by a a plane.  Yeah, right.  

But, MOST IMPORTANT, is an undeniable fact that makes any comparison between Truthers and Birthers both insulting and preposterous:

There is not a single case on record where a 9/11 Truther examined the increasing pile of evidence brought forth by scientists, engineers an others – then denounced the movement and became a champion of the official story of the attacks.

On the contrary, thousands upon thousands of people who truly believed what they were told by the Bush administration, looked at the evidence, listened to the questions that were raised, and became the skeptics and questioners who wanted to know the TRUTH about the worst attack on the United States in history.  

No one can say that about Birthers.  No one.  Not even Chris Matthews.

Matthews himself acknowledged that no amount of evidence changes the mind of those who really believe that Barak Obama was born somewhere in Africa.  The operative word here is ‘evidence.’

If Matthews had contrasted the two groups rather than compare them, he would have exhibited some element of journalistic integrity.  He would have pointed out that the Birthers IGNORE evidence, whereas TRUTHERS want media and the government to STOP IGNORING evidence.  

It is painfully clear that Chris Matthews has never investigated the work of the 9/11 Truth Movement, and has no clue as to their work or their purpose.  It is his job as a journalist to inform his viewers on issues he takes the trouble to research.

He did nothing of the sort.

As a result, we at challenge Chris Matthews to do his job more professionally, and look at the EVIDENCE that motivates Truthers to plead for a fair hearing rather than dismissal.

Chris Matthews plays Soft Ball with Terry Jones

E-mail Print PDF

This evening, Chris Matthews interviewed the mad pastor Terry Jones on MSNBC's Hard Ball. This pious man of the cloth plans to burn copies of the Qur'an in a ceremony in Gainesville, Florida, to commemorate the attacks of 9/11. Not surprisingly, Jones was treated as if he were a rational, respectable guest, - and given air time to promote his filth about Islam.  In a month so dominated by Muslim-bashing, a most deferential Chris Matthews managed to add insult to injury and promote the kind of misinformation and bigotry that has taken hold of this country. This was not Hard Ball at its best by a long shot.  It was fawning, subdued Soft Ball at its worst.

Condy Rice - War Criminal - Gets a Free Pass on "The View"

E-mail Print PDF

Former Sec'y of State Condoleezza Rice made it to ABC's The View this morning, so naturally, Barbara Walters showed up as well.  Wow, another big name interview for the wannabe political forum, - right after some quasi-relentless sparring with Ron. Blagojevich just a few days before.  It was the perfect time for Babs to bring 'er on, and finally ask the tough questions about war and torture and eight years of Bush hell.  Yeah, right.

Beware the Bogey Man: A new low, even for McCain and his ignorant supporters!

E-mail Print PDF

On Friday, as he rallied his bigoted, small-minded followers in a suburb of Minneapolis, John McCain made a most bizarre attempt to reverse the fear mongering and bigoted tone of his faltering campaign

The incident involved a brief exchange between a pathetic McCain supporter and her increasingly desperate candidate. What happened was this: during a rally at Lakeville South High School, McCain handed his microphone to a woman who expressed her concerns about Barack Obama "I don't trust Obama,” she said. “I have read about him. He's an Arab."

Just then, for just one unrealistic nanosecond, I naively hoped that John McCain would take the high road and reject such a bigoted attack from someone in his painfully ignorant audience.  Instead, my heart sank in disbelief as I heard the response to this ethnic slur from a man who would be our national leader.

“No, ma’am” offered John {our hero) McCain, “He’s a decent, family man, [a] citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues and that's what this campaign is all about."  

Implicit, of course, in that response was another message: Don’t worry, ma’am, Barack Obama is NOT an Arab.  Unlike Arabs, he’s a decent, family man.

Sarah Palin, Lemming Hunter

E-mail Print PDF
Maybe it’s genetic, but Sarah Palin sure is good with a gun.  It seems that daddy loved bringing down those nasty Alaskan brown bears in a town where little Sarah first learned to alarm the local moose community.  But trust me, I’m not knocking moose stew; it might be a really good meal.

Palin grew up in Alaska, where people hunt and fish.  So be it.  This is not going to be a dissertation on animal rights or a moral critique on her spare time activities.  Moose and salmon and wild birds are fair game for hunters in her neck of the woods, and Sarah hunts and fishes with the best of them.  Good for her.

But in her new role as the GOP veep candidate Sarah Palin has crossed a line, even for a hunter.  This time she has set her sights on a new and unfamiliar target. This time she is not aiming at a herd or a bevy or a flock.  This time she is going after a large group of intelligent, thinking Americans known as women voters.  .

And this time, as she hunts in uncharted territory, Sarah Palin has made a strategic error.  For some distorted reason, Palin thinks she is hunting lemmings.
