The most memorable quote from the Super Bowl was, unexpectedly, “Investigate 9/11. 9/11 was perpetrated by people within our own government.” But how in the hell did that guy make it past so many levels of security to interrupt Malcolm Smith’s press conference in the first place? Pretty easily, it turns out.

NJ.com landed an interview with Matthew Mills, a 30-year-old from Brooklyn who describes himself as an independent journalist. And the most amazing part is that he didn’t merely sneak into the press conference—he talked his way into the Super Bowl itself. So much for all of that security theater.

We returned to our familiar haunt of the Wellington Railway Station underground. There were three of us with DVDs, flyers and the multitude of signs that were stretched along the walkways. We had an unfortunate musical accompaniment, a very loud saxophonist, who was there the entire time. I think that encouraged people to speed through the passageways as quickly as possible, unlike the dulcet tones of the violinist who was our unplanned accompanist late last year.

It took about a half an hour to distribute our 100 copies of the latest AE911Truth DVD, “Experts Speak Out”, after which we distributed older compilation DVDs. We lost count, but we passed out well over 200 DVDs and flyers. Many passers-by told us that they already had DVDs we had given them, but unfortunately these people seldom stop to talk about their reactions.

We had the usual mix of reactions, with some people uttering disparaging remarks while lacking the courage to stop and discuss their views. One of our members had a lengthy conversation with two young men who had done extensive research in a effort to bolster their quasi-religious belief in the official conspiracy theory. Cognitive dissonance was oozing from their pores while they held fast to their convictions.

The people who don’t take DVDs fall into five groups of people who:
1. have already taken DVDs;
2. look at us and say, “no, thanks”;
3. are in their own little worlds, taking no note of their surroundings;
4. studiously ignore us, staring intently ahead;
5. react negatively. This is by far the smallest group.

We detected that the people in group 5 were more surly than in the past. These people, staunch defenders of the Establishment, have heard a lot of news lately that challenges their faith in the powers that shouldn’t be. Mainstream news polls now offer the choice of “the government did it” in their list of choices about the Boston bombings. We are having an effect, however gradual.

Here’s a quote from one of our members:

From my point of view, last evening was a success. I gave away about 50 ESOs to the defence people (none in uniform but some support staff and one or two ‘suits’). One suit laughed at the street signs and another said something derogatory to me.

A sophisticated well dressed woman (a Sue Kedgley look-alike) asked me what we were on about. I gave her an ESO DVD and she exclaimed “Oh I see, its about 9/11 – I know all about that s**t!” I was shocked that such a refined woman would say that ‘word’. She told me that she was an activist opposing the Trans-Pacific-Partnership. She asked me did I know about it. I said that we were also activists and knew all about TPP. She took the DVD and thanked me. Made it all worthwhile. I did not feel up to arguing with the 2 lads who desperately wanted to believe the ‘official’ story. The elder one had studied a lot about 9/11 and corrected me on minute detail.

As I mentioned above, this is the behaviour of someone seeking to support a religious belief, not someone interested in discovering facts.

Till next time!

Tens of political activists have gathered in front of the White House, calling on US President Barack Obama to close the Guantanamo Bay Prison in Cuba, Press TV reports.

The protesters in Washington DC wore prison-style jumpsuits in support of the 166 prisoners being held at the notorious US prison.

As a result of the protest, Pennsylvania Avenue was closed down.

Dozens of activists wearing prison-style jumpsuits converged in front of the White House late in the morning and by the afternoon, Pennsylvania Ave was shut down.

Diane Wilson an activist from Texas locked herself to the fence outside of the White House to call for the closure of Guantanamo Bay Prison. Her action–a climax to weeks of demonstrations and earlier events urging for the prison’s closure. She’s on day 10 of a hunger strike in solidarity with prisoners who are also on a hunger strike and are being force fed through nose tubes.

Three Kiwi Heroes
Waihopai heroes give up their shirts and….

Three brave kiwis, Adi Leeson, Sam Land and Peter Murnane appear in the Court of Appeal in Wellington this morning seeking to overturn a High Court decision allowing the GCSB to pursue a civil claim for $1.2 million for damage done to the Waihopai spybase when they deflated one of the domes in an anti-war protest in 2008.

This trio were found not guilty of wilful damage by a jury in 2010 but the GCSB are taking them to court for damage to the dome and to pay for pies and drinks for the workers who re-erected a new dome.

The trio will take part in a protest outside the court of Appeal this morning at 10am with a protest following at the steps of parliament where the poverty-stricken trio will offer the government the shirts off their backs and…. They will be met at parliament by Mana MP Hone Harawira.

This protest deserves public debate since the government is this week to introduce into parliament legislation to make legal what the GCSB has been doing illegally for 10 years now – spying on New Zealanders.

BOSTON TRUTH: The “Chechen Connection”, Al Qaeda and the Boston Marathon Bombings
By Prof Michel Chossudovsky
Global Research, April 22, 2013

Global Research Editor’s Note

Global Research will be publishing a series of articles and reports with a view to promoting “Boston Truth”. The underlying objective is to confront and challenge the official version of events concerning the Boston bombings as well as the twisted and convoluted interpretations of the mainstream media.

We invite our readers to endorse “Boston Truth” and spread the word on social media, independent media and blog sites.

Nine thousand heavily armed police including SWAT teams were deployed in a manhunt to capture a 19 year old student at U-Mass, after his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the alleged Boston Marathon terror mastermind was shot dead by police allegedly after a car chase and shoot out with police.

Prior to the conduct of a police investigation, the 19 year old student has already been designated as “guilty”. The fundamental legal principle of “innocence until proven guilty” has been scrapped. In the words of President Obama (a graduate of Harvard Law School), the Boston 19 year old student is “guilty” of heinous crimes (without evidence and prior to being charged in a court of law):

“Whatever hateful agenda drove these men [suspects] to such heinous acts will not, cannot, prevail. Whatever they thought they could achieve, they’ve already failed…. Why did young men who grew up and studied here as part of our communities and our country resort to such violence?” (emphasis added)

Coupled with the alleged anthrax and ricin letters in Washington D.C. which mysteriously surfaced in the immediate wake of the Boston tragedy, both Washington and the media have underscored the Tsarnaev brothers tenuous ties to Chechnya’s militant jihadist insurgency.

According to the Wall Street Journal, quoting expert scholarly opinion:

”…the Chechen [family] background is maybe a part of what leads them [the two suspects] to do what they do,” said Lorenzo Vidino, an expert on Chechen militants at the Center for Security Studies in Zurich.” … A profile on the Russian social-networking site Vkontakte that appears to belong to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev includes a propaganda clip rallying jihadists to go to Syria to fight alongside rebels there, citing sayings from the Prophet Muhammad. [Amply documented, it just so happens that the jihadist foreign fighters in Syria are recruited by the US and its allies] (Wall Street Journal, op cit.)

What is implied is that even if the suspects are not tied to a Muslim extremist network, their embedded cultural heritage and Muslim “background” incites them –quite naturally– to commit acts of violence. How does this concept –which routinely associates Muslims with terrorism– repeated ad nauseam in the Western news chain, affect the human mindset?

While the identity and motives of the suspects are currently being examined by police investigators, the Tsarnaev brothers have already been categorized –without supporting evidence– as “Radical Muslims”.

Across the land, Muslims are being smeared and demonized. A new wave of Islamophobia has been set in motion.

by Ian Henshall,

co-ordinator, Reinvestigate 911, www.reinvestigate911.org

author, 911 The New Evidence (pub Constable, London)

If whistleblower Ali Stevenson is correct, it appears that yet again a terrorist attack, this time the Boston bomb, occurred at the same time as an official exercise was taking place.

The Norwegian attack, the London 7/7 bombings and the 9/11 attacks all turned out to be running in tandem with exercises which were eerily similar to the real terrorist attacks.

According to Stevenson, a sports coach, there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines. ‘They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about,’ he told a local TV channel.

In the case of 7/7 in London, retired police terrorist expert Peter Power, clearly in a state of shock, initially told radio listeners that the exercises he had helped organise even specified the same tube stations as the real attacks.

In the case of 9/11 the Pentagon seems to have gone to considerable lengths to hide the fact that they were running multiple exercises including an anti-hijack exercise on the morning of the real 9/11 hijacks. The 9/11 Commission discovered the evidence for the anti-hijack exercise after seizing and reclaiming tapes which the Pentagon had erased. By then, short of time and money, the Commission was not able to investigate further, even if the Washington insiders who made up its key personnel had wished to.

Washington has refused to release the details of the Pentagon’s 9/11 hijack exercise script, but Richard Clarke, white House anti-terror czar at the time, has written that Pentagon exercises would often be highly realistic. Clarke is also suspicious of the role of the CIA in protecting the alleged 9/11 hijackers from arrest during the lead-up to the attacks. Recently he lent his support to multiple reports from angry FBI officers who believe they might have been able to prevent the astonishingly successful attacks used as a pretext for over a decade of foreign wars.

The mainstream media in the NATO countries have largely ignored Clarke’s suspicions and may ignore important elements of the Boston reports too. Mainstream editors are under pressure from advertisers, owners and sometimes even their own correspondents who fear losing access to official sources if their newspaper causes offence. Where a story ‘is going’ is often more important than whether it is true. But citizens are increasingly informed by less controlled media on the internet and from outside NATO. Questions seem to be emerging faster with each incident.

Washington critic and philosopher Webster Tarpley, one of the first to draw attention to the links between Barack Obama, the CIA and the bankers, has explained why anti-terror exercises can be useful to false flag terrorists in the dark corners of a military industrial complex that has a vested interest in war and terror. They provide both a cover story if things go wrong and an explanation to colleagues not in the know if they should chance upon a plot. An anti-terror exercise running in parallel with a major terror attack is not proof of collusion but, say sceptics, it is grounds for further investigation.

For the first time since the Oklahoma Bomb in 1995 it seems that white extremists may be held responsible for a high profile terrorist attack. Oklahoma was originally blamed on Arab terrorists but the story changed following the unexpected arrest of Timothy McVeigh, an ex US special forces operative. While turning Homeland Security into a fully armed military force, the Obama administration is in a struggle to push through gun control and this attack will prove a political godsend if it can be blamed on angry gun owning white males.

In addition, Middle Eastern observers say that Al Qaeda is no longer Washington’s enemy du jour. The al-Nusra Front, a key part of the insurrection in Syria, has recently announced that it is part of Al Qaeda. This puts Al Qaeda publicly back on the same side as Washington and the CIA, as it was originally, created by the CIA and the Saudis to help bring down a Russian backed government in Afghanistan in the 1980′s. This time they are using terrorist bombs to overthrow the Russian backed government of Syria.

In one sense the people of Boston and the people of Damascus are now on the same side, innocent victims of random terrorist attacks, although for the people of Damascus it’s on an altogether different scale.

But the mainstream NATO media are unlikely to remark on any of this. The facts are taking the story in the wrong direction. The owners and advertisers are mostly on the other side.

The highly touted conspiracy theory course at Victoria University of Wellington (VUW) has now gained a regular spot in the academic calendar. Search this site for Kerry McBride to get background on the course and some commentary on the possible motivations for it.

With this class under way, we decided to have our first group action on the VUW campus on March 12. (Although this was our first group appearance on campus, one of our members had already distributed hundreds of DVDs a couple of years ago during clubs week.) We stationed ourselves outside the building where the class was held and distributed our AE911Truth flyers and the latest DVD from that group, Experts Speak Out, with stunning labels created by one of our members. We also distributed some other compilation DVDs to others who were not evidently enrolled in the course.

We spoke to two people who were enrolled in the course. They were receptive to us, but also said that they were withholding any comment on the course because they had only had one class session so far.

In general, the reception on campus was better than any other location we have visited to date. That said, one of our group had a discussion with a young man who seemed to be off the scale on the Dark Side. It’s just as well that these types don’t usually engage us in conversation. We had other stimulating discussions with Kiwi students and several international students. One student commented to me that his English language class was laced with pro-USA propaganda.

One of our members has a close family member who fears for his/her safety, thinking that the police may go G20 on us for exercising our rights of free speech. This same member offered DVDs to two police officers who seemed positively frightened at the offer of free truth info. No G20 action yet; in fact most uniformed people seem to be intimidated by us. That said, I recall some good conversations that TruthMama and I had with some police officers at a demo a couple of years ago. We weren’t the centre of attention, so perhaps that made them feel less threatened by us.

We’re thinking of re-visiting the VUW campus over the next few months. There were four of us, and we were there around midday. Come out and join us next time!

Come along to add your voice to the call of women around the world who are saying NO to war and YES to peace

Wellington, Thursday, 7 March: join us from 5.30pm to 6pm, at the NZ armed forces HQ, corner Aitken and Mulgrave Streets

Auckland, Friday, 8 March: join us from 5.30pm to 6pm, at the Army HQ, 204 to 234 Great North Road

The theme this year is alternatives to military spending, eg, ~ welfare not warfare ~ education not militarisation ~ Please wear black if you can, and bring black streamers / ribbons / wool, photos, messages, cardboard or paper peace doves to decorate the military HQ, something to make a noise with – pot and spoon, drum, your voice – during the time of anger, flowers or candles to leave there during the time of mourning, and a poem or reading to share during the time of reflection …. and your own banner or placard if you wish. All women and children welcome.

The poster for Women Say NO to War 2013 is attached and available at http://www.converge.org.nz/pma/iwd13.pdf Organised by Peace Movement Aotearoa and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, for more information please contact email pma@xtra.co.nz or wilpf@xtra.co.nz or go to http://www.converge.org.nz/pma/iwd13.htm

Global Day of Action on Military Spending, 15 April 2013

Last year global military expenditure was $1.738 trillion (US$) – on average, more than $4,761,000,000 (US$) every day. By way of contrast, an average of more than 24,000 children under the age of five die every day from mainly preventable causes – lack of access to adequate food, clean water and basic medicines. This is one of the prices paid, the collateral damage that is seldom talked about, for maintaining armed forces in a state of combat readiness around the world.

If you would like to be involved in the 2013 Global Day of Action in Aotearoa New Zealand, or would like your organisation listed as a supporter of the Global Day of Action and of the urgent need to change spending priorities away from funding armed forces towards meeting human needs (the list of supporting organisations is at http://www.converge.org.nz/pma/gdams-supp.htm ), please contact Peace Movement Aotearoa email pma@xtra.co.nz with ‘GDAMS 2013 support’ in the subject line of your message.

It was quite the afternoon on Cuba Mall. The weather forecast was a bit iffy, but we ended up with a bright, sunny afternoon with enough of a breeze to put a bit of billow in our banner.

The unfortunately true equation

We also had our usual AE911Truth banner, and a long vertical banner that provoked quite a few conversations.

9/11 and its evil spawn
Our banner showing 9/11 and its evil spawn

There were seven of us out today, with our usual wide age span. Our conservative estimate of DVDs distributed today is 280. Our presence, with a larger group and more provocative signage may have elicited a greater than usual number of hostile reactions, or perhaps people are feeling edgier with the current political climate in New Zealand and overseas. That said, we also felt that we had some of the best conversations we have had during our actions. People do seem to relate the widespread wars of aggression in the Middle East with 9/11.

I personally had the greatest number of “Why are you doing this?” questions I’ve ever had. I stressed the importance of 9/11 as a gateway issue for many activists, including myself. The horrific and audacious nature of 9/11 was enough to get many of us out of our comfortable homes and into the streets with signs, DVDs and flyers.

We strive to develop a critical mass of people who are more politically aware in general, but who are specifically more attuned to the nature and power of false flag events. When the next 9/11 happens, we need enough people who will immediately recognise the signature of a false flag event, and will take action to prevent New Zealand from becoming embroiled in another Afghanistan or Iraq. We stress that it only takes a small number of people with this awareness, so long as they all stand up on their hind legs and fight back in whatever way is necessary. In this case, knowledge truly is power.

On the eve of the 11th anniversary of the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan, we were sadly the only peace activists on Cuba Mall.

9/11 See the Evidence Exhibition in Wellington this weekend (Saturday 8 September – Sunday 9 September) was another huge success! We estimate approximately 500 people came through the exhibition to see the evidence and learn the facts about 9/11. The exhibition was focused on Peter Wood’s visually compelling work from the graphic booklet – www.911-see-the-evidence.com. There was also video footage featuring the collapses of Building 7 and the twin towers and a compilation film of the ae911truth Experts Speak Out (the first four minutes summarising the new laws such as the NDAA) plus Solving the Mystery of Building 7.

Chris Ashley had constructed from balsa wood a scale model of WTC7 which was situated in the exhibition alongside a situational map of the building 7 in relation to the Twin Towers. This year, Jade Tuckwell had created an impressive model of the Twin Towers, which made for a dramatic scene next to the Building 7 model. There was also a literature display and the latest documentary, Explosive Evidence, Experts Speak Out and our combo disk including Press for Truth and Elephant in the Room available for all visitors to take away free of charge. The ae911truth flyer and the 9/11 whistleblower flyers were also available.

Despite a stormy day on the Saturday with gale force winds and persistent rain, we did get some people visiting. Thanks again to those who braved the weather and did an excellent job handing out leaflets along Oriental Parade and at the New World Supermarket and Railway Station. As a result many people given a flyer on the Saturday returned to visit on the Sunday.

I felt this exhibition was unique, in the sense it provided the audience a supportive psychological venue in which to confront the evidence and the implications of it. It was evident that some people had real psychological obstacles to looking at the facts about 9/11, but was heartening to see those going through the transformation of looking at the evidence for the first time and coming to terms with it.

We all had some very intense conversations with people this weekend, both positive and negative. Some of us received negative feedback from people unwilling to look at the evidence and called us conspiracy theorists. Many people viewed the collapse of Building 7 for the first time and were both confused and shocked that the media and governments had not revealed this information to the public for so long. There was a diverse range of people of all ages who viewed the evidence. A university student and a lecturer said the material would be very useful for a university course and their study. Many people thanked us and offered their support.

I would like to thank the members of our action group in Wellington for all the hard work and generosity in donating to this exhibition and to Martin Hanson in Auckland who traveled down on the Friday and helped us with the set up and for his generous donation. Thanks also to David Ruddlestone from Raumati who helped transport the display boards on Friday.

We all worked incredibly hard this weekend and in the weeks leading up to the exhibition but we all felt when we closed the doors it was definitely worthwhile! Some visitors asked if the exhibition was traveling around New Zealand and even the rest of the world! I will be finalising a budget and if anyone in other areas would like to exhibit the work, please contact admin@nz911truth.org
