Glenn Beck’s Outrageous Lie: Racist Von Brunn is “Hero of 9/11 Truthers”

There should be absolutely no doubt Glenn Beck is a government disinfo operative tasked with taking down the 9/11 truth and patriot movements. In fact, Fox News — as a primary fount of Operation Mockingbird — is tasked with attacking not only the 9/11 truth movement but the pro-liberty and Constitution movements as well.

“Our country is now vulnerable,” the operative Beck declares. “Those people who would like to destroy us — our enemies like Al Qaeda. They’d like to destroy us, and they will work with anyone. There are also people like white supremacists or 9/11 truthers that would also like to destroy the country. They’ll work with anybody they can.”

In other words, the 9/11 truth movement, according to Beck, will work with al-Qaeda. If you read between the lines, Beck is calling for the government to dish out the same kind of violent response to the truth movement the CIA-created al-Qaeda received in Afghanistan or at Camp Gitmo. Beck is calling for murder and torture of people who disagree with the government.

Fox News did a smash up job subverting the tea parties and reducing the movement to a carnival sideshow while CNN and especially MSNBC went into overtime to portray the “tea baggers” as irrelevant and absurd.

On October 22, 2007, Beck — then a host on Prime Time News — viciously attacked the 9/11 truth movement, describing the whole movement as “insane” and branding 9/11 activists as “dangerous anarchists.”

“These truthers are exactly the kind of people who want to rock this nation’s foundation, tear us apart and plant the seeds of dissatisfaction in all of us” said Beck. He later said the 9/11 truth movement is “the kind of group a Timothy McVeigh would come from,” insinuating the movement is intent on violence.

In November of 2007, Beck the operative teamed up with the scurrilous ex-Marxist and neocon David Horowitz to denounce Ron Paul’s supporters as terrorists. “Beck opened up his show segment by inferring that the U.S. military should be used to silence domestic dissent against the war, claiming that those he would later identify as Ron Paul supporters, libertarians and the anti-war left and link with terrorists, were a ‘physical threat,’” wrote Paul Joseph Watson for Prison Planet.

“When you enlist in the U.S. military, you have to take an oath that says you’re gonna support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies - foreign and domestic - we talk a lot on this program about the foreign threats - maybe we should spend some time tonight on the domestic one….the physical threat may be developing domestically as well,” said Beck. ...

9/11 Truth Comes Home; Pols Back New Investigation

By Frank Morales

It’s spring 2009 in New York City and an unannounced U.S. government plane streaks across town. Recollecting the horrors of 9/11, the incident scares the heebie-jeebies out of the citizenry. Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer, while attending an April 18 “Tour of the Battenkill” annual bicycle race in Cambridge, N.Y., responds to a question regarding efforts here to establish a new 9/11 investigation. Lending his qualified support to such an inquiry, he says that he’s positively disposed toward a new investigation into the events of 9/11, though his support for such a probe would depend on the form it would take. “I think it’s not a bad idea,” he said. “You know, you’ve got to do it in a good way, but, yes, I’d be for it.”

New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, for her part, recently joined her colleague and also recommended a fresh look at the events of Sept. 11, 2001. Commenting on May 27 to a young reporter who had suffered the loss of a loved one during 9/11, she responded to the question of a new investigation by suggesting that “another review, or a fuller hearing” is warranted, especially given the number of questions put forward by victims’ families that remain unanswered. “I think those questions should be answered,” Gillibrand stated. She went on to affirm that, “It’s important that every family member have every question answered.”

Schumer and Gillibrand are not the first to call for a new (real) investigation of into the crimes 9/11. The list is long and it’s growing. A small sampling of some of the more notable adherents to this call include former President Jimmy Carter, who when asked if he’d support family members who want a new investigation into 9/11, stated, “Yeah, I don’t have anything to do with it, but I certainly would. It would be nice.” Former Senator Mike Gravel, who brought the Pentagon Papers to the U.S. Congress long ago, supports the idea as well. As does his friend Daniel Ellsberg, the military analyst who leaked the Pentagon Papers.

Republican Senator Lincoln Chafee wants to see a new investigation, as does former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura. Ventura and other members of Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth (including Curt Weldon and Cynthia McKinney) are “calling for a new, independent investigation of 9/11 that takes account of evidence that has been documented by independent researchers but thus far ignored by governments and the mainstream media.”

On the international front, former Italian President Francesco Cossiga, U.K. Member of Parliament Michael Meacher, Japanese Diet member Fujita Yukihisa and former German Defense Secretary Andreas von Buelow have all expressed support for a new inquiry into the Sept. 2001 attacks. So has British M.P. George Galloway, who put it this way: “The failure of the Bush administration to properly investigate, maybe for self-serving reasons, because it would have shown them to be monumentally incompetent, or something more sinister than that, is another argument that is beginning to be established.

“We don’t know everything,” Galloway said, and because “there are lots of questions,” there is “definitely the need for more investigation.”

The noted author Gore Vidal, prior to the last elections, stated, “I think one advantage of having a Democratic House of Representatives after the coming election will be that we can have a new commission investigate 9/11 and the events leading up to our attacks on two innocent countries, Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s about time that we begun to clean up our own house before we find that an international tribunal has summoned our leaders to The Hague in chains to put them on trial.”

Why, even Lee Hamilton, ostensible co-chairperson of the federal 9/11 Commission, the body tasked with getting to the truth of what happened — which many now feel was set up only to concoct and rationalize the official story in the first place — even he admitted that their own commission was “set up to fail.”

Finally, let’s not forget, as Ralph Nader has reminded us, that the Bush “government didn’t even want to have an inquiry” at all. And let’s not forget that the inquiry the 9/11 Commission did eventually carry out — with ground rules set up by its executive director, Philip Zelikow, a Condi Rice confidant — insured, according to Nader, that “they weren’t going to name names, or hold anybody responsible.” “So right from the get,” said Nader, the government-sponsored investigation of 9/11 “was flawed” and, consequently, “there needs to be another one, and the best place to have it is New York City.”

Well, apparently there are many who live and work here in New York City who think the same thing. In fact, 45,000 of them and counting! An organization called NYC CAN, or the New York City Coalition for Accountability Now (, composed of family members, first-responders and survivors, has gathered some 45,000 signatures toward a ballot initiative for this coming November 2009. The initiative would allow the voters of New York City to sanction a new investigation of 9/11, an investigation with teeth, with subpoena power and with a scope of inquiry that promises to leave no stone unturned.

In a sense, although NYC CAN takes no position regarding the facts of the case, calling only for a new inquiry, it appears to represent the global “9/11 Truth Movement” come home. Having spread its critical spirit and zeal for an honest rendering of this most heinous crime, its truth has comes marching home, home to New York City, to the scene of the crime, come home in the form of a movement for a new investigation. Given the energy and support behind its efforts, NYC CAN just may succeed in putting the matter of an authentic investigation of 9/11 on this November’s ballot, and in the process, open up the mother of all cans of worms.

Obama Appoints 9/11 Commissioner to Post of Envoy to India

"Liberal," future-focused Obama just can't live without appointments tied to (CIA Nazi recruiter) Kissinger, (Iran contra's) Scowcroft and (corporate sleaze broker) Albright. 9/11 Commissioner Tim Roemer hails from the Center for National Policy, an oily foreign policy "think-tank" that boasts Madeleine Albright, of course, who preceded him as CNP president. - AC

9/11 panel member is US India man
May 29, 2009

New Delhi: US President Barack Obama on Thursday nominated Timothy R Roemer, a veteran Democratic Congressman and a member of the 9/11 Commission, to be his envoy in India and help advance Washington’s ties “at this critical time for our nation and the world”.

“We must address the tension between Pakistan and India over Kashmir. For generations, this issue has fuelled extremism and served as a central source of friction between two nuclear states. Resolving this dispute would allow them to focus more on sustainable development and less on armed conflict.” This is what Roemer wrote in a US daily, The Philadelphia Inquirer, on October 23 last year in an article, Keys to securing Pakistan.

Roemer, 52, is currently president of the Center for National Policy (CNP), a Washington-based think tank.

He is a distinguished scholar at the Mercatus Centre at George Mason University. He was a partner at Johnston and Associates, a public and legislative affairs consultancy, before he became president of the CNP. Roemer is not just known for his interventions in national security issues ...


After the attacks of September 11th, Roemer used his position on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to support the work of a Joint Congressional Inquiry into the nature of the attacks. Roemer also was the key sponsor of legislation to establish the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, known as "The 9/11 Commission." Roemer now serves on the Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism, a bipartisan commission created by Congress in 2007 as an outgrowth of the reforms put forth by the 9/11 Commission to examine how the United States can best address this threat to our national security. In addition, he serves on the Washington Institute for Near East Policy's Presidential Task Force on Combating the Ideology of Radical Extremism, and the National Parks Second Century Commission.

Since leaving Congress in 2003, Roemer has continued to work on developing ways to strengthen national security as President of the Center for National Policy. e has promoted new ideas on national security issues on NBC Nightly News, CNN, FOX, NPR and in the pages of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, USA Today, Time Magazine, U.S. News and World Report and others. As a Distinguished Scholar at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, Roemer works with Members of Congress and staff to improve public policy outcomes by teaching on the legislative branch and policy analysis. ...

Ben-Veniste says Bush let 9/11 Happen

Bush criticized by former 9/11 commission member

WASHINGTON (AP) — A former member of the 9/11 Commission criticizes former President George W. Bush in a new book for not responding to pre-attack intelligence on Osama bin Laden's intentions.

In "The Emperor's New Clothes: Exposing the Truth from Watergate to 9/11," Richard Ben-Veniste writes that CIA analysts told Bush that bin Laden was determined to strike inside the United States, "yet the president had done absolutely nothing to follow up."

A Democrat and a longtime Washington attorney, Ben-Veniste provides an inside account of the commission's three-hour interview with Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney on April 29, 2004.

Bush told the panel that the Aug. 6, 2001, intelligence summary — known as a presidential daily brief — was the only one he ever received on the domestic threat, Ben-Veniste writes. ...
