9/11 and Judy Wood’s Blind Alley

People who look into the physics of the collapses of the twin towers will soon run across the claims of Judy Wood and Morgan Reynolds, that the towers were brought down by some kind of secret beam weapon from an orbiting satellite.  They base this claim on the presence of incinerated cars nearby and handwaving arguments about the seismic signature, the shape of the dust clouds and overhead photos of damaged buildings in the vicinity.  The cooked cars can be easily explained by the thermite hypothesis: the radiant energy of tons of molten iron would be contained by the shell of the building until the moment of collapse, at which point it would suddenly engulf the surroundings.  In any case, a more direct approach would be to consider the geometry of the situation.  The collapses were obviously axially symmetric. The buildings didn’t first start crumbling on one side and then another, all sides were involved simultaneously, at least until being obscured by dust.  So assuming the beam hypothesis, either the towers were destroyed by multiple beam weapons in surrounding buildings, all triggered at once and somehow kept from destroying objects behind the crumbling towers, or a beam weapon or weapons pretty close to directly overhead.

Assuming the latter, what does this say about the location of a satellite carrying such a weapon? (I’m going to ignore the major problem that the collapses didn’t start at the tops of the buildings as would be expected from an overhead beam emanating from a source of small angular size). It would have to stay pretty close to directly overhead for the duration of the collapse, and it would have to pass overhead again when the second tower collapsed. But these two statements are contradictory. An orbital period of 30 minutes (the time between the collapse of the buildings) would require unrealistically low altitudes and high speeds. Even a satellite in a circular orbit of zero miles (e.g. orbiting a neutron star of one earth mass at an altitude of one earth radius) would take 84 minutes to complete and be travelling at nearly 5 miles per second. Obviously such an object would come and go in the blink of an eye and burn up in the atmosphere in no time at all.  A geosynchronous satellite can be ruled out because NYC is nowhere near the equator.  The only other alternatives would be 2 satellites at high inclined orbits, or a spacecraft which isn’t in orbit at all and using something other than inertial propulsion (i.e. antigravity) but at that point why not bring in the easter bunny while you’re at it?

The presence of thermite in the WTC dust, videos of molten metal at around 2K centigrade degrees (judging from the color spectrum) flowing from the south tower just before collapse and eyewitnesses to “rivers” of molten metal in the ruins is sufficient evidence of demolition. In terms of falsifying the official explanation, we can already prove the 9/11 investigation was a farce. Judy Wood does nothing but draw ridicule to a very reasonable demand that, at minimum, official lies and propaganda about the “war on terror” be worthy of a high school physics curriculum.

Smile, Big Brother Is Watching You

Thousands of pages of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) documents released under the Freedom Of Information Act highlight that the military is extensively flying surveillance drones in non-restricted skies throughout the country.

The records, released by The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), reveal that three branches of the military are operating drones within civillian airspace. Those branches are the Air Force, the Marine Corps, and DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency).

According to EFF, the documents show that the Air Force is testing all manner of UAVs, from small hand launched drones all the way up to the Predator and Reaper drones, the kind that routinely conduct missile strikes in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen.

EFF notes that the use of drones capable of extensive surveillance in public airspace is concerning, especially since recent reports have revealed that Air Force drone operators have been conducting practice spying missions by tracking civilian cars along highways adjacent to military bases.

In addition, a recently uncovered Air Force document also raised alarms over military use of spy drones in US skies. The document outlines how to circumvent privacy laws, and clears the way for the Pentagon to use drones to monitor the activities of Americans.

EFF notes that the latest FAA documents indicate that the Marine Corps is also flying drones in US skies, but that “it chose to redact so much of the text from its records that we still don’t know much about its programs.”

Perhaps most disturbingly, DARPA, according to the documents, is flying full sized Reaper drones in areas of Nevada, California and Utah that are able to use technology that can capture motion imagery of entire cities. The technology, known as “Gorgon Stare” uses an array of nine to twelve cameras attached to the drone to take concurrent footage from multiple different angles. …


Is it possible that the people who operate this program are unaware of its ultimate purpose?  Will it seem coincidental to them that the mechanisms of mass oppression and control are already in place when the economy “accidentally” implodes because our well-meaning government technocrats don’t quite know what they’re doing?  Will they realize which side they’re on before it’s too late?  Or will they already be committed to the dark side?

Success: The Collapse of American Jobs

There was a time in America when virtually anyone that wanted a job could go out and get one and the United States boasted the largest and most prosperous middle class in the history of the world.  Sadly, those days are long gone.  Back in 1969, 95 percent of all men between the ages of 25 and 54 had a job.  But now there are millions of Americans in their prime working years that cannot find a job.  Millions of others are working low wage jobs or part-time jobs because that is all they can get.  The other day I went to a large retail store and I got into a conversation with the lady who was checking me out.  She said that she had worked professional jobs all her life, and that she had taken this job to tide her over as she searched for a new job, but now she had been there for two years with no end in sight.  I felt really bad for her, because she was obviously a sharp lady with a lot of skills.  But this is the new reality.  Good paying manufacturing and professional jobs are being replaced by low paying service jobs.  We are transitioning from an economy with plenty of good jobs to an economy with plenty of bad jobs.  The next stage in our transition will be to an economy where it seems like there are no jobs for anyone.  We are witnessing the tragic downfall of the American worker, and it is heartbreaking.


No problem, the people that matter have already moved their operations to china.  After the shock doctrine really takes hold here, they’ll move back and scoop up everything for pennies on the dollar.
