For evidence that America’s political system is a criminal conspiracy, open your mind to piles of new analyses that prove beyond doubt that the official 9/11 story is a lie.  Years of a bipartisan cover-up of 9/11 lies make it much more than one horrendous past event.  It endures in infamy as a symptom of a corrupt and dishonest government.

 

Every day we pay for what 9/11 and its cover-up have burdened us with, including the costly Iraq war and the erosion of the rule of law and constitutional rights.  Power elites have suppressed the truth because they fear what will happen when the public understands that 9/11 was not accomplished solely by foreign terrorists.

 

Technically sound analyses of what happened at the World Trade Center have unequivocally shown that the official 9/11 story is not credible (www.ae911truth.org).  Truth seekers have met their burden of proof; the government has not met theirs.  Simply put, controlled demolition brought down three buildings, not fires from the impact of planes on two of them.  Not only was the US government involved, it has also conspired to hide the truth from the public.  Why?  Republican and Democratic politicians and power elites fear that 9/11 truth will remove what little public trust remains in government.  The truth will produce political instability, perhaps breaking the two-party stranglehold on our political system.  And it should.  And it must, if we are to finally obtain the deep political reforms our nation desperately needs.

 

The decline started before George W. Bush and his criminal co-conspirators accelerated it with their blatant disregard for the rule of law and our Constitution.  It will continue, even with a Democratic administration, unless we reform our political system.  We must remind Americans that our nation was born in an insurrectionist, populist rebellion against political tyranny – and that 9/11 teaches us that we need a Second American Revolution.  We must destroy the domestic Axis of Arrogance of our plutocracy more than fear a foreign Axis of Evil.  How?

 

A vast nationwide grassroots 9/11 truth movement is ignored by the mainstream news media.  Its success will be the catalyst for renewing American democracy.  It will produce a shock wave that rattles the brains of all Americans: Shock therapy from a truth so powerful and unsettling that Americans finally see the decline of American democracy that allowed 9/11 and its cover-up.

 

Make no mistake, the 9/11 truth movement holds the future of the United States.  We are not subversive “conspiracy theorists” or enablers of foreign terrorism.  We are patriotic warriors working to nullify group delusion produced by government propaganda.  Dozens of books and websites reveal countless technical contradictions and inconsistencies with the official government 9/11 story and the laws of physics.  The weight of the evidence supports one painful verdict: Our federal government played a role, probably through a large “black op.”  The “why” is obvious: To justify an unjust war to serve corporate interests and greed.

 

Here is our opportunity: To make 9/11 the tipping point for American democracy renewal.  Our enemies fear that if this movement succeeds, their plutocratic, elitist cabal – the Axis of Arrogance – run by the two-party duopoly will collapse.  Corruption keeps our political system stable – truth must clean it up.  Instability is the necessary price for restoring democracy.

 

A Paradigm Shift

 

9/11 lies have sustained the ruling terrorism-threat paradigm.  9/11 truth must energize a new political-reform paradigm.  Patriotism framed as defending the nation against terrorism must be replaced by patriotism focused on repairing American democracy.

 

Already, status quo protectionists lie about us to defeat our movement.  Things will get worse as our movement draws closer to bringing down the corrupt political system.  And we are getting closer.  Only 16 percent of Americans believe that members of the Bush administration are telling the truth about what they knew about terrorist attacks on the US prior to 9/11, according to a New York Times/CBS News poll.  But what people say in polls is not the same as coming out publicly and vociferously for 9/11 truth, or seeing the roots of 9/11 in the decay of American democracy, not merely the actions of a few evil people.

 

The deceived public must be re-educated to see the arrogant power elites running our national plutocracy as worse than radical Islamic terrorists.  Paul Craig Roberts captured the essence of the problem: “Americans think their danger is terrorists.  They don't understand the terrorists cannot take away habeas corpus, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution. ... The terrorists are not anything like the threat that we face to the Bill of Rights and the Constitution from our own government in the name of fighting terrorism.  Americans just aren't able to perceive that.”

 

9/11 is a history lesson to inform the nation about democracy decline.  As John McMurtry asked, “So which goes - the faith in America’s greatness and goodness in the world, or the facts which disclose the opposite at the very top?”  We must always remember that Americans are better than their government.  They do not get the government they deserve.  They get the government that the rich and powerful impose.  That must end.

 

We confront more than power elites.  There is psychological resistance of millions of Americans to painful 9/11 truth – a shameful, “unthinkable” truth about their elected government.  Even if they have doubts about the official story, they instinctively recoil and erect mental barriers to block out the full truth.  They want to keep believing that they live in a great democracy.  They want to believe that when the Bush administration is replaced our democracy will be in good shape again.  Hard to accept that 9/11 truth could not have been suppressed this long without the tacit or explicit approval of Democratic politicians and power brokers.

 

It is as if we are telling children that their parents are mass murderers.  Distracted, time-poor, depressed, political disengaged, cynical and insecure Americans do not want to hear that their government had a hand in 9/11.  That for years their two-party-controlled government has blatantly lied to them.  That thousands of good Americans have died and been terribly injured in a war propped up by the false-flag 9/11 fiction.  In sum, that despite elections a vast criminal conspiracy has been so successful for so long.  Such thoughts hurt.

 

Also, political instability is scary to ordinary Americans.  But stability based on corruption and lies is destructive.  Only when Americans see 9/11 as a political attack (by Americans on Americans) – not solely a terrorist attack (by foreigners on Americans) – will they understand that revealing 9/11 truth must lead to major political reforms.  Instability is the cost of democracy renewal.

 

Here are powerful messages: The collapse of the rule of law is more important than the collapse of buildings.  Countless more have died because of 9/11 than on 9/11.  The events of 9/11 ultimately are less important than the reasons for and consequences of 9/11.
