#34 9/11 Truth? - Article Not Found

February 26th, 2012

AtheistsYou are probably here because you read #34 9/11 Truth? by John Roth yesterday at OpEdNews and can’t figure out why today when you click on the link, OpEdNews returns

Article Not Found
Sometimes, authors delete their articles after publishing them.

Continue reading if you want to find out why #34 9/11 Truth?, an article that yesterday at 6:30 pm was ranked as the #2 Most Popular Content on the site, is “Not Found” today.

Otherwise click here to read #34 9/11 Truth? [1]

#34 9/11 Truth? was originally written for the CIA controlled website Dailykos. DailyKos is owned and operated by Markos Moulitsas Zuniga and in one of those coincidences that don’t happen very often, was born September 11, 1971. And speaking of 9/11 and 'Conspiracy Theories' in general, they are forbidden at DailyKos, 911 Truthers are Dummies (renamed 34 9/11 Truth?) was successful at getting around The FAQ (rules and guidelines for posting diaries) [2]:

DailyKos accepts that the 9/11 attacks were perpetrated by agents of Al-Qaeda. It is forbidden to write diaries that:

  • refer to claims that American, British, Israeli, or any government assisted in the attacks
  • refer to claims that the airplanes that crashed into the WTC and Pentagon were not the cause of the damage to those buildings or their subsequent collapse. Yes, this does include 'controlled demolition' of WTC 7.

911 Truthers are Dummies and #34 9/11 Truth? discredit both the official and the 9/11-truth story, setting up the reader to consider my story behind the story behind the story of why the twin towers collapsed and largely turned to dust.

I’ll get right to the point, I have read the books and watched the documentaries on September 11 for three years and the 9/11 official story:

Nineteen fanatical Arab hijackers, masterminded by an evil genius named Osama bin Laden, crash airplanes into steel skyscrapers because they “hate our freedom to consume” and inexplicably on 9/11 jet fuel, which is basically kerosene that burns at about 400c, took on the qualities of an explosive demolition agent, vaporizing 70 tons of aircraft into a puff of smoke and causing 110-story buildings to collapse into a pile of rubble.

The official story is so stupid Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld didn’t expect you to believe it.

There is absolutely no evidence, hypothesis or theory that can prove that a controlled demolition using thermite, “Israel’s Super-Thermite” or nano-thermite, is responsible for the collapse of the Twin Towers on 9/11. [8] “A picture is worth a 1000 words,” therefore I submit 3,000 words in three pictures:

Hiroshima North Tower Controlled Demolition of a Hotel

#34 9/11 Truth? at Opednews got the attention of James Fetzer, a suspected disinformation agent, however there is no tin foil hat 9/11 conspiracy at work here.

The article was deleted because Rob Kall realized it was written by me, Robert Singer.

2008 Debate: "It's the economy, stupid" (OpEdNews 404 – Repost)

2008 Debate: "It's the economy, stupid"

Barack Obama and John McCain clashed over the causes and cures for the worst economic crisis in 80 years in the debate last night.

Republican McCain called for a sweeping $300 billion program to stop mortgage foreclosures so they could continue the American Dream and get back to shopping. Yes, national politicians are still suggesting that if we just shop some more for stuff made in China, our economy will get back on track. What part of import/export economics do our elected officials not understand?

The current economic crisis, according to Barack Obama, is the result of the last eight years of the Bush administration. Not true, it is the final verdict of United States economic policies of the last six decades. Americans enjoyed the highest standard of living in the Western world based on our ability to import cheap, raw materials (thanks to the CIA) and ship refrigerators, cars, airplanes and military hardware to the rest of the world. When the rest of the world caught on, and the refrigerators, cars, airplanes and even our socks started to be produced elsewhere, we still had one more product to ship offshore, and, beginning in 1980 the Reagan administration embarked upon the greatest export of all: OUR DEBT. What we are witnessing in the economic crisis today is the final death march of the dollar. After the government printed an extra trillion dollars over the weekend, the huge drop in markets worldwide shows the extent to which people no longer believe the safest place to be is in U.S. dollars. Our economy also hinges on understanding our dependence on foreign oil. Both Obama and McCain were sure that if we just get out and start drilling we can get the economy out of trouble and back on track for everyone to experience the American Dream. Although drilling offshore or onshore is on the bridge to nowhere, there is a solution to our economic problems related to energy.

Does the following analysis sound familiar?

A weakening U.S. dollar is putting upward pressure on oil prices. The shock produced chaos in the West. In the United States, the retail price of a gallon of gasoline rose 50%, consumption dropped by 6.1% from September to February. Underscoring the interdependence of the world societies and economies, oil-importing nations in the noncommunist industrial world saw sudden inflation and economic recession. The energy crisis led to greater interest in renewable energy and spurred research in solar power and wind power as well as increased interest in mass transit.

"Will the bail-out really matter?" (OpEdNews 404 – Repost)

February 26th, 2011

Will the bail-out really matter?

I will give you odds Congress will vote in favor of the bail-out. And that’s not just because Warren Buffet told Congress to act swiftly. Buffett said, “Wall Street's troubles were inseparable from the finances of everyday US consumers.” The key to figuring out how to bet on the bail-out is the word “consumer” AKA “shopper”. The highest priority for the Bush or for that matter any administration is shopping. Consider the following:

The Economic Stimulus Package was a plan to help the economy. Last spring, the IRS sent checks of up to $1200.00 to over 130 million households. Did it help? Of course not. Why would buying stuff from China that we don’t need and are apt to throw away as fast as possible help the “economy”?

Surely you remember December, 2006, when this nation teetered on the brink of a national economic recession. At that time the President implored Americans to shop more. He said: As we work with Congress in the coming year to chart a new course in Iraq and strengthen our military to meet the challenges of the 21st century, we must also work together to achieve important goals for the American people here at home. This work begins with keeping our economy growing. … And I encourage you all to go shopping more.”

And of course, no one will forget that after 9/11, when our country was in shock, President Bush could have suggested any number of appropriate things: to grieve, to pray, to hope. NO. He said to shop. TO SHOP?

Finally, you can’t lose money betting on the architect of the bailout, Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the United States Federal Reserve. In 2002, he gave a speech about deflation. In that speech, he mentioned that the government is a fiat money system that owns the physical means of creating money. Control of the means of production for money implies that the government can always avoid deflation by simply dropping more money out of helicopters, so that is why he is known as "Helicopter Ben" with his "helicopter printing press”.

Bet the farm on the bailout.

"Give Us the ANWAR and Keep Shopping" (OpEdNews 404 – Repost)

"Give Us the ANWAR and Keep Shopping"-They Found They Can't Have Both

Associated Press (AP) reported on September 13th, 2008 that the unprecedented rise in gas prices has brought a change to the American way of life that even a drop in oil prices below $100/barrel won’t erase. As AP put it, “Public transportation is in. Hummers are out. Frugality is in. Wastefulness is out.”

Apparently, the worst gas price hike has produced the worst-case scenario for the select group of people who raised the price of gasoline to almost $5.00/gallon smug in their belief they could get Americans to give up their last Arctic wilderness while continuing to buy useless, wasteful consumer goods.

Two significant things happened recently after gas approached $5 a gallon and oil was selling for $142 a barrel.

• Retail sales fell in July as shoppers shunned autos and other big-ticket items. In spite of government stimulus payments to U.S. households retail sales dipped 0.1 percent last month when a variety of economic woes including skyrocketing gas prices combined to blunt America's shopping habits—habits which wreak havoc on the environment.

• August 14, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) signaled her willingness to consider opening up more coastal areas to oil and gas exploration. Just weeks before Pelosi was resolved to block any votes to allow offshore drilling.

Once the environment's last bastion of defense (Congress) had fallen, and gasoline prices rose so high, it tremendously curbed American buying habits, gasoline prices mysteriously came down almost a dollar and oil is now under $100 a barrel.

Really? Just because a month ago we agreed to consider more drilling? Oil drops by $45 a barrel, is that possible?

No. It appears the price of gasoline stayed high too long. A $45/barrel drop in oil isn’t enough to fool anyone into thinking the “economy” is back to normal. You can’t cover up bank failures, home foreclosures, high unemployment and the experts like Warren Buffett predicting major disruptions in financial markets.

Even with the recent drop in gas prices, Americans seem to have realized they can live comfortable lives by returning to a time when they valued stewardship, resourcefulness, and thrift…and that just might be good for everyone who has to live on this planet.

So the same select group of people who were betting on trashing the ANWR and on trashing the planet by getting the public to shop for billions of dollars of useless, non-recyclable consumer goods appear to be losing. As the AP press said, “Americans have changed; being frugal is the thing.” And that makes winners of the rest of us, for now.

There's a 20-minute documentary storyofstuff.com that lays this all out in a manner that even a child could understand and shows the path to saving the planet is no more complicated than controlling our addiction to all that "stuff."

Rob Kall Ranks The Peoples Voice Among the Top 100 Blogs Overall

January 4th, 2011

By Mark Powell

worstpartofcensorBreaking News: Rob Kall, executive editor/publisher of OpEdNews.com, recently “Ranked Among Top 100 Blogs Overall," gets his news and opinions from The Peoples Voice (TPV).

Yesterday (1/3/2011, at 11 a.m.) TPV publishes OpEdNews Ranked Among Top 100 Blogs, Why?. The article had no XML feed description and was not picked up by Google News.

As of 11:01 a.m. there were still two articles by Katherine Smith that had not been removed (censored) from the OpEdNews website:


  1. Baron Otto Von Bolschwing, SS Veteran of Eichmann's "Jewish Affairs"
  2. Why was I born? Why are we here?

By 2 p.m. the links were dead, i.e., “This article is not currently available.” [1]

Here are the articles that Rob Kall doesn’t want you to read: [2]

What can you conclude when the Editor of one of the Top 100 Blogs goes to the trouble to scrub an article that was the #1 most popular on his site for 48 hours? As they say, when you are “over the target,” Expect a “404"

Here is the article that Rob Kall read yesterday (1/3/2011).

OpEdNews Ranked Among Top 100 Blogs, Why?

By Mark Powell

Just got a mass email from Rob Kall, executive editor/publisher of OpEdNews.com: "Nice to start the new year with this news: OpEdNews Ranked Among Top 100 Blogs Overall."

OpEdNews is Bold and Daring: The Way Progressive News Should Be (LOL)

Consider the top 15 articles at the site for the past week:
#1 12/30/2010: America's Gulf: New Report Says It's Dying (by Stephen Lendman)
#2 12/28/2010: Rove Might Be Trying To "Pull A Siegelman" With Julian Assange (by Roger Shuler)
#3 12/28/2010: Is an economic collapse being prepared? If so, for whose benefit? (by Richard Clark)
#4 12/27/2010: FROM MIDDLE CLASS TO SLAVE CLASS - COURTESY OF THE FED, THE WHITE HOUSE, CONGRESS AND THE BANKERS. (by lila york)
#5 12/27/2010: THE U.S. STOCK MARKET IS RIGGED (by lila york)
#6 12/23/2010: Pentagon's Christmas Present: Largest Military Budget Since WW II (by Rick Rozoff)
#7 12/31/2010: Obama's Outrage: Rage Against Russia, Silence at Indian Injustice (by Chris Floyd)
#8 12/28/2010: 2011 (by paul craig roberts)
#9 12/26/2010: Have You Been Fooled: These Dirty Pharma Marketing Tricks? (by Martha Rosenberg)
#10 12/27/2010: 2011: A Brave New Dystopia (by Chris Hedges)

#15 12/26/2010: Welcoming the Summer Soldier: Suppressing Dissent in America (by David Model)

“Bold and Daring,” not really. “Thought Provoking,” not a chance. The same old rant that everyone else publishes, for sure.

Of the top 15 Rob had the “courage” to publish, almost every one is replete with negativity and a Corporatocracy rant. The identical rant that we are bombarded with at every other alternative news and opinion website, 24x7 (except, of course The Peoples Voice, currently featuring Thought Provoking Articles):

What we aren’t getting that they have, that we deserve but they won’t give us because life isn’t fair. And don’t forget the world is full of a bunch of greedy bastards who run the corporations that don’t care about anything but profits.

I began thepeoplesvoice.org fourteen years ago to provide people with a place to speak out on the issues and to awaken others to the the great truths and the great injustices. I think if enough people know what is happening we can change it. 

It takes eight to sixteen hours a day, seven days a week to properly administrate the site. The ads on the site barely offset the cost of the internet connection. The financial situation has become very difficult and more time must be focused on survival, leaving less time to post new and important content.

I am dedicated to truth and making this a better world. I believe positive change can be achieved if more people join the fight. I still have strength to continue, but I can't do it alone.
