The inevitable end result of our last 56 years


Recommended Posts

Permit me to recommend, to like-minded persons, the South Korean assassination drama The Man Standing Next (2021), an ambitious, Oscar-submitted film about the inglorious 1979 KCIA coup against SK president Park Chung-hee.  We should make 'em this good over here - films and coups:

Criminal charges against Trump Organization announced as "possible" in New York:

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jun/25/trump-organization-possible-charges-new-york

Let's hope criminal prosecutions do what any Congressional committee won't do, and put Trump where they put Wilhelm Reich.  (God rest the latter and his largely harmless extremities.)

Perhaps we could reconsider the possibility of WTC 1 and 2 pancaking and collapsing due to the rupturing  of the integrity of  the load-bearing walls and center support columns (which included the elevators) due to the damage inflicted on them from the planes that were deliberately crashed into them (not a 'bomb' inside the buildings) as a result of the collapse this week of the Surfside, FL condo building...

Pamela,

The "pancake" theory of the collapse of WTC1 and WTC2 has been thoroughly debunked.

There was no gravitational pancaking of the floors in WTC1 and WTC2.  Study the film.

Instead, the towers both abruptly collapsed into their own footprints at near free fall acceleration, with high velocity, explosive ejection of steel girders and pulverized concrete.

What obliterated the massive steel sub-structures of the towers?  Pancaking of floors would have caused only partial, gradual collapse against the resistance of the steel sub-structures-- but only after the steel girders had burned for a day or more, if then.  (This is evident from a study of fires in comparable steel skyscrapers in history.)

Instead, the massive steel girders of the WTC towers were rapidly melted, and 900,000 tons of concrete in each tower was explosively pulverized into the atmosphere of lower Manhattan.  NYFD survivors described molten steel at Ground Zero that was flowing "like a foundry."

The official government explanation was that burning jet fuel had melted the steel girders, but there wasn't nearly enough jet fuel to trickle down and melt all of those steel girders-- over 100 floors of solid steel.  Nor does jet fuel burn at temperatures sufficient to liquefy steel.

Additionally, you can actual observe (and hear) the serial explosions that destroyed the steel girders on existing video and audio recordings.

W,

IMO, the 'pancake theory' you mention has only been 'debunked' by those who do not take into account the unusual structure of WTC 1 and 2.  Or, they may not understand the implications of the structure.  

Here is a brief summary...

https://science.howstuffworks.com/engineering/structural/world-trade-center-construction-unique.htm

And to also mention that OBL was trained as an architect and could have figured out this design flaw in the twin towers...as in, 'if you take a widebody jet, fill it full of fuel for a transcontinental flight and then direct it toward the midsection of one of these buildings, the structural integrity could be catastrophically compromised and it will fall...the fuel will accelerate the process..."

And let's add into that the 1993 WTC bombing, which did threaten the integrity of WTC1 with the bomb going off in the basement not far from the slurry wall that kept the Hudson River out...

Pamela, no one can explain how the tilting top of South Tower disintegrated in mid-air while the bottom was simultaneously disintegrating without the top pancaking on top of it.  Conveniently, the top then fell into the same footprint as the bottom, without destroying neighboring buildings - as it would have, had it remained intact.

This site contains some overly speculative articles, but also some sensible physics examinations.  Look under the 9/11 tab for further links on the controlled demo, as well as the complete anomaly of the WTC 7 collapse:

Curious.

Do big cement buildings brought down in controlled demolition pulverize into mostly ash like both towers? 

And if they do, wouldn't it be mainly facilitated by having many explosive devices going off in sequence on every floor?

Heck, video of buildings being hit by huge tonnage aerial dropped bombs during World War II showed irregular collapsing of their walls but never a pulverizing into ash like 911.

Pamela,

      Study the film.  There is no pancaking of floors.  Period.

     The steel substructures were demolished by visible and audible serial explosives, resulting in an abrupt-onset, symmetrical, near free fall collapse of the entire steel structures into their own footprints.

      The only "scientists" who still make the "pancake" claim are propagandists promoting the false U.S. government narrative about what happened on 9/11.

      It's analogous to the oft-repeated claim that all of the bullets in Dealey Plaza on 11/22/63 came from Oswald's Carcano in the TSBD.

      "Reputable" experts, including scientists like Luis Alvarez, have repeated that bogus Oswald narrative in our mainstream media, and on social media, for the past 57 years.

Trump's going to have a rally tonight in Wellington, OH., population 4,846 (2014 est.).

Hope he doesn't leave them out in the field again like he did in Nebraska last year.

According to CNN, Trump highlighted footage of confrontations between law enforcement officers and protesters and said: “That’s how you’re supposed to handle these people. Crack their skulls!”

Trump also reportedly told law enforcement and military leaders he wanted the military to “beat the xxxx out” of protesters and said: “Just shoot them.”

Bender reports that in the face of opposition from Milley and the then attorney general, William Barr, Trump said: “Well, shoot them in the leg – or maybe the foot. But be hard on them!”
