  1. If Ron Paul is your guest tomorrow take the opportunity to 1. ask him what he knows about Sibel Edmonds, and 2. press him to do what he can to give more exposure to this story.

    1. Damn straight. Anything that's critical of America's "51st state" is off limits. Congress–except for Representative Ron Paul and, perhaps, a few others–is "Israeli-occupied territory."

      Sibel Edmonds makes grave allegations.. Why did the government muzzle her? Afraid of something? . . .

  2. One would think allegations of trading nuclear secrets, rampant corruption, spying, and blackmail would make for a hot news story. One would be wrong. Not a peep from the mainstream media. Or should we call it Pravda?

  3. If the corporate media and USG don't touch this, why not get some other country–Iran or Venezuela come to mind–to bankroll the "proper investigation" called for by Giraldi and Lauria since it seems that MONEY is the only factor in keeping any investigation from moving forward?

  4. Nice to see 911 interest piqued. Hopefully other credible names associated with 911 will come up on the Anti-war radar like Indira Singh, Steven Jones, Michael Springerman, Richard Gage to mention a few.

  5. It's not that the "MSM" has its "head in the sand" or is "cowardly", "complacent", "corporate" etc., etc., etc.; rather, the "MSM" is an enemy weapons system. It's simply an agent of the government of Israel and nothing more.

  6. If you guys are so concerned with ending/preventing U.S. wars, how about you invite someone on from NYCCAN, the New York City Coalition for Accountability Now. They've collected 80,000 signatures from NYC residents to put a referendum on the November ballot for a real, independent investigation into 9-11 WITH SUBPOENA POWER. Their ballot proposal names several independent citizens as investigation members, so there's no way it would be a whitewash.

    They need media support for their cause, however. Watch this video:

    then go to their website:

  7. Yeah Glenn 911 was a lihop, with the mihop nano thermite that made sure the WTC and escpecially WTC 7 fell. Yeah and the pentagon was hit with a hellfire missile fired from a predator. Where's the aircraft debris on the pentagon lawn?
