  • WE RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING from someone who worked for Fiduciary Trust on the 90th, 94-97th floors of the South Tower: "On the weekend of 9/8,9/9 there was a 'power down' condition in WTC tower 2, the south tower. This power down condition meant there was no electrical supply for approx 36 hrs from floor 50 up. I am aware of this situation since I work in IT and had to work with many others that weekend to ensure that all systems were cleanly shutdown beforehand ... and then brought back up afterwards. The reason given by the WTC for the power down was that cabling in the tower was being upgraded ...

    "Of course without power there were no security cameras, no security locks on doors and many, many 'engineers' coming in and out of the tower. I was at home on the morning of 9/11 on the shore of Jersey City, right opposite the Towers, and watching events unfold I was convinced immediately that something was happening related to the weekend work."

Or, I mean, it's, it's not relevant. So, why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that. And watch him suffer.

    9/11 German Engineers Help the USA
  • What Happened on 9/11?


  • 9/11 - Boeing 747 Pod Explosion Similar to MK-84 GP Bomb Detonation
  • After reviewing the video from www.letsroll911.org , JackBlood.com has analyzed the flash emitted by the tip of the ‘pod’ located below the airliner. Webmaster Mario Andrade, a Gulf War veteran an explosive ordinance specialist, has noticed remarkable similarities between the ‘pod’ and a military-type general purpose (GP) bomb, such as the commonly used Mark 84 (MK-84).

  • A Short Word to the World from the Creators of LetsRoll911!.org - It can be proven that missiles were used against the world trade center. It can further be proven that the World Trade Center was brought down by controlled demolitions, purposely, with 3000 innocent, helpless souls inside...

  • In a nervous city, places like the Federal Plaza (below) run scared, while the Daley Plaza (above hangs tough

  • Who's the United States' major ally today in Iraq? Hint: it may not be part of the "Coalition of the Willing." You might instead label them the "Brotherhood of the Extremely Well Paid": mercenaries working for private security firms in Iraq. Estimates of their number run from 5,000 to 15,000. And while no one really knows how many there are, thousands more are due to join them
  • The mercenaries range from South Africans and Philipinos to Iraqis, Indians and Chileans to former U.S. Navy SEALs and Special Forces—carrying out what, in effect, are military services in Iraq, at salaries many times higher than those of the most skilled U.S. soldiers

  • THE VIDEO THAT PROVES 9-11 WAS NOT A SURPRISE
  • But far more telling than Bush's reaction is that of Mr. Card himself who, as can be seen in the above clip, steps in to inform Bush of the second impact (without mentioning the fact that more hijacked planes were in the air), then immediately steps back without waiting for a reply. Bush's job is to make decisions. How does Mr. Card know that Bush will not make one then and there?

  • The Master Plan of the Illuminati to end America as a sovereign and independent nation appears to be right on schedule.

  • The Illuminati elite envision 2010 as the fatal year in which the "skull" of the fading, old order shall be crushed. It is 2010 when the writhing, pained, rotting corpse of America shall be alchemically transformed into "New Age perfection."
