Fear Mongering

"...because he is unfairly being linked to people like Alex Jones and all these illogical scenarios that are nothing else but fear mongering."

Fear mongering? Are you kidding me? I won't even go in to the 9/11 subject with you because it would be futile as you've certainly never taken any physics classes. But to attack people like Alex Jones and those seeking the truth about 9/11 with fear mongering is a disgrace. If you want a real taste of fear mongering please watch this wonderful video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSk4SUpWVuY ,then tell me who's been doing the fear mongering? That's what got us in Iraq and has been the number one cause of American's giving up their freedom. Rethink what you've said please, and then in the words of Rudy Ghouliani, I ask that you withdraw that comment and tell us that you didn't really mean that. Foolish.

No.

I'm not withdrawing any comments on here and giving into these ridiculous conspiracy theories that have no logical weight whatsoever. Agreed, Giuliani is a fear mongerer who talks like terrorists live under everyone's bed, but people like Alex Jones are just as bad on the opposite side of the spectrum. The 9/11 Truthers are one of the most destructive subsets of Dr. Paul's support, and I wish you people would stop your McCarthy-esque denial of the reality that has been proven to exist multiple times. This whole "HALLIBURTON 9/11 SAUDIS BUSH BLACK HELICOPTER ALIEN" stuff is a load of baseless bunk thought up by children with too much time on their hands. And the most damaging part is that it's hurting our candidate. A couple of buildings collapse, then all of a sudden a bunch of random people on the internet are experts when it comes to physics and demolitions?

This is a government that can't even delete their emails correctly, and you expect me to believe that they orchestrated something like 9/11? This lunacy is downright sad.

Sad

Well, let it not be said I didn't give you you're chance. Evidently, you don't have enough time on your hands to research anything further than watching Fox news. I know that by your statement of "random people on the Internet". That's what Fox news says about Ron Paul supporters.

You also dishonor the families that lost loved ones during 9/11. There are more of them than you'd care to know, or learn about that don't need physics classes to smell a rotting carcass.

What luck for the rulers that men do not think.

Thank you

Wonderful article. My favorite paragraph goes out to DataSage. It reads as follows: "If one looks at the credentials of skeptics compared to the credentials of defenders of the official line, it is impossible to dismiss skeptics as kooks. There are many people with strong imaginations on the Internet, but serious skeptics stick to known facts, known violations of standard procedures and the laws of physics. The vast majority of the people who call skeptics "kooks" are themselves ignorant of physics and have little comprehension of the improbability that such an attack could succeed without either the complicity or complete failure of government agencies."

Peace and truth.

I don't know about all that...........

Micheal obviously knows a lot about the hunt for the "bad guys", but this whole 9-11 episode stinks to the High Heavens...and I think he's missing the obvious. In his efforts to track down Bin (is it Osama, or Usama?), he wasn't watching Dick Cheney's hand on the controls here in the US command centers. I challange ANYONE to direct me to a web site, (or other source) that shows the crash site of the Pentagon explosion or the Penn. plane crash site THAT indicates the horrific signs of a real commercial plane crash: i.e. at least 1 body, at least 1 strewn suitcase, at least 1 piece of wing, at least 1 piece of tail section. A plane crash site leaves an awful lot of mess........and I've yet to confirm it's existance. Can you? If you can, share it with me. I'll be the first to admit I'm wrong. Don't tell me, "the ground swallowed it up, or the building ate all the crash evidence". That won't wash. I want to see pictures of real evidence.

Folks, this just doesn't add up. I know it makes for bad politics, (Rep. Paul needs to dodge this fight) and it really makes you question a lot about what we take for granted. Draw your own conclusion, but don't be ignorant just because Bush & Co. tells you how things happened. His administration needed a "war on something" and "terror" really sounds serious. Now we got it.......go figure. Pin the tail on Osama.

The question on the war

The question on the war that you have to ask people when approaching them on voting for Ron Paul is are you willing to sacrifice another 2400 soldiers in the next 2 years to hope that the Iraqi government with all its sects can come together. We can't even make our own government work, much less force Iraqi's to make theirs work.

Winning the war, thats done, but its another thing to sit by and allow Iraqi's and whoever else to blow our soldiers up while we wait for the Iraqi government to do something- thats plain crazy.

Pentagon

I live near D.C. and I can confirm (seeing as how my neighbors office was deestroyed in the attack) that it was definitely a plane. I saw the sight soon after, and no there weren't signs of a plane, but these guys probably didn't even know how to slow a plane down. A plane at full speed that hits a stationary object will violently explode leaving nothing. I even know a guy that personally was on break that saw the plane that hit the Pentagon.

Please take a physics course.

I really would like people to stop coming on this website with this 9/11 conspiracy crap. Every time I read it I realize why a lot of people think Dr. Paul is crazy, because he is unfairly being linked to people like Alex Jones and all these illogical scenarios that are nothing else but fear mongering.

I can't help but shake my head at posts like this because they defy all of the possible realms of common sense.

You are in the Minority

Zogby Poll: 51% of Americans Want Congress to Probe Bush/Cheney Regarding 9/11 Attacks; Over 30% Seek Immediate Impeachment
67% also fault 9/11 Commission for not investigating anomalous collapse of World Trade Center 7.

Kansas City, MO (Zogby International) September 6, 2007 - As America nears the sixth anniversary of the world-churning events of September 11, 2001, a new Zogby International poll finds a majority of Americans still await a Congressional investigation of President Bush' and Vice President Cheney's actions before, during and after the 9/11 attacks. Over 30% also believe Bush and/or Cheney should be immediately impeached by the House of Representatives.

WTC 7 housed the mayor's emergency bunker and offices of the SEC, IRS, CIA and Secret Service and was not hit by any planes but still completely collapsed into its own footprint nearly eight hours after the Twin Tower attacks. FEMA did not explain this collapse, the 911 Commission ignored it, and the promised official study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is now 2 years overdue.

Conspiracy, which story? While its a touchy subject this 9/11 movement is gaining traction.

Thanks Greenbug

I didn't mean to stir up a hornets nest with 9-11 talk, but today is the anniversary and we still do not have any resolution - 6 years later! That in itself is highly suspicious. It's because of such shady government actions that I support Ron Paul. If we only knew half of what really happened, we'd be overwhelmed. At least we can all agree, that with Ron Paul in office we wouldn't have to worry about inside colluded events such as 9-11.

Part of my point is, Ron Paul would be well served by not taking sides on "who" imploded the buildings, it's a no- win proposition for a politician.
But, man oh man, Greenbug, ain't the evidence piled high! The Truth shall set you Free........as for me, I'm going for it!

You are demagoguing the events of 9/11

I like how you post a worthless Zogby poll that says:

"51% of Americans Want Congress to Probe Bush/Cheney Regarding 9/11 Attacks; Over 30% Seek Immediate Impeachment; 67% also fault 9/11 Commission for not investigating anomalous collapse of World Trade Center 7."

And then present it as saying:

"51% of Americans Want Congress to Probe Bush/Cheney For Conspiracy and Involement in 9/11; Over 30% Seek Immediate Disposal of Government; 67% also fault 9/11 Commission for not investigating the government-orchestrated collapse of World Trade Center 7."

The government didn't tell us everything that happened on 9/11. Why? Because there was an obvious state of incompetence. People messed up, and because of everyone from the President to the CIA head ignoring important and bountiful intel on terrorist plots to hijack planes and use them as virtual missiles, 9/11 happened.

The masses believing WTC 7 collapsed is only affirmation of the Founding Fathers' original thesis in the drawing up of a constitutional Republic: the masses are dangerous, and sometimes downright stupid. Skepticism is absolutely essential to the preservation of freedom. Lunacy and downright inane scenarios that defy all physical and scientific logic is a staple of what Ron Paul called the "corruption of the people"... and I quote from him:

"Political leaders today are more interested in opinion polls than they are in the Constitution and freedom principles. Any event of importance is quickly analyzed by a poll, which the politician takes to heart and responds to in an appropriate way."

People messed up.........?

That's a little bit of an oversimplification, don't ya think? The most intricate defense systems the world has ever known......and people messed up? Sure must of have been a bunch of folks "asleep at the wheel". Why, when Payne Stewarts little ole jet flew off course in Florida, those tracking jets were on it within 10 minutes......and on this day, 6 years ago, we've got 4 passenger jets flying off courses for 45 minutes in New York City - - - Get a rope!

the big picture

OK, some people believe that 9/11 was an inside job, but this is not what we should be focusing on. Instead, we should emphasize to people that the federal government is too big and that we need a president that will follow the constitution. I'm sure you won't do that by preaching that 9/11 was an inside job. People will not listen to you because they will just think you're a crazy conspiracy nut. If you want Ron Paul to win, leave your 9/11 conspiracy theories until after the election.

Second the Motion

Yes, I second the motion Michael Scheuer for Vice President. Wow, wouldn't it be great to have two intelligent, truthful leaders for once. I get giddy just thinking about it. This man has as much courage as Dr. Paul to come forward with this, two courageous men. How could we make this happen?

Prepare & Share the Message of Freedom through Positive-Peaceful-Activism.

A New Ron Paul VP?

Wow, quite the interesting videos. This guy says everything that Ron Paul has been telling America....and a former CIA head! And a documentary is about to be released? I think this just could be better than any tv commercial for Ron Paul.

An honest CIA guy....my new choice for Vice Pres. Now we have two people in government that are truthful...a good start, but a long way to go.

Bob W., Naples, FL

Interesting idea, Bob.

And it would force the media & other candidates to actually pay attention to his words -- at least, one would hope...I started out wanting Walter Williams. He said no and then Dr. Paul said nice things about Gov. Sanford. Who knows about him, but now you've brought up this guy. It would be interesting, for sure, to see the arguments the other side would no-doubt try to use against him for Bill Clinton's continual unwillingness to pull the trigger....

Gov. Sanford

I think Governor Sanford in SC would be an excellent choice for VP. At least he has some executive experience, and he was one of those people in Congress who voted his conscience even if 400 people were voting the other way. That's the kind of man I want to be President, someone who is not afraid to take a stand on principle.
