9/11 UPDATE: Most Witnesses at the WTC Heard And Saw No Planes

The Original No Planers:
Most Witnesses at the WTC Heard And Saw No Planes


Morgan Reynolds — February 28, 2008

"The closer you were, the less you knew."
--Police Chief Joe Esposito, NYPD

"It was almost like the closer you were,
the less you knew...As we look back,
we were the least informed."
--Battalion Chief Joseph Pfeifer, FDNY

Inside the lobby, I think we knew less
of what was going on than
people outside or in the street, or the
people watching on television.
--Thomas von Essen, former FDNY fire commissioner

The official 9/11 conspiracy theory claims that suicidal Muslims hijacked four airliners on the morning of September 11, 2001 and slammed them at high speed into the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and a landfill in rural Pennsylvania. Millions believe these stories based on the (dwindling) authority of the U.S. government and corporate media, reinforced that morning by "live" images on TV of a plane disappearing behind the towers, followed by a sensational, Hollywood-style explosion in the south tower.

Yet doubts, questions, counterevidence and logic subvert the official story at nearly every turn. For example, did Muslims really hijack airliners? How good is the evidence for that claim? Did Boeing airliners crash as advertised? Do physical and circumstantial evidence support this proposition? Figuring out what really happened is the first question to investigate about 9/11, just like any other criminal or scientific investigation.

The insurmountable problems for the official conspiracy theory include the evidence that aluminum wide-body 767s did not seem to "crash" into the towers but instead, as portrayed in pictures and videos, slipped silently into and disappeared inside said steel-framed towers from nose to tail, wing tip to wing tip, with an apparent silhouette of passage of an airplane outline mysteriously appearing some unknown time after the explosion, undersized though these gashes in the buildings were, without slowing, without degrading, without crumpling, without deforming, without breaking off wings or wing tips, flaps, panels, actuators, fuselage or tail section, without fuel spillage, without burned fuel spilled down the face of either impact wall; without a visible wake vortex in the (delayed) explosions or sound of a jetliner and without evidence of any airplane pieces visible in the tower holes or below the impact zones despite the combined weight of 166 tons of airplane parts or 332,000 pounds, 6.2 million aircraft parts according to Boeing, plus cargo and fuel weighing some 230,000 pounds, and no known air crash investigation with confirmation of parts unique to each commercial airliner matched to maintenance logs; the explosion fireball was remarkably gray in contrast to real explosions of large jets with charcoal and black fireballs;

elementary physics makes the two "crash" events as depicted impossible; "America fell for the Roadrunner trick" as an anonymous poster on a forum put it. Even Bill Pitts of the National Institute of Standards and Technology who was in charge of WTC pictures and videos in NIST's investigation remarked, " me it's still amazing that the building just ate the plane. It's amazing that fires didn't start initially when it first went's miraculous when you look at it."


Study: Contaminant levels high in parks

Study: Contaminant levels high in parks

By MATTHEW BROWN, Associated Press
Last updated: 5:42 p.m., Wednesday, February 27, 2008

BILLINGS, Mont. -- Pesticides, heavy metals and other airborne contaminants are raining down on national parks across the West and Alaska, turning up at sometimes dangerously high levels in lakes, plants and fish.

A sweeping, six-year federal study released Tuesday found evidence of 70 contaminants in 20 national parks and monuments -- from Denali in Alaska and Glacier in Montana, to Big Bend in Texas and Yosemite in California.

The findings revealed that some of the Earth's most pristine wilderness is still within reach of the toxic byproducts of the industrial age.

"Contaminants are everywhere. You can't get more remote than these northern parts of Alaska and the high Rockies," said Michael Kent, a fish researcher with Oregon State University who co-authored the study.

The substances detected ranged from mercury produced by power plants and industrial chemicals such as PCBs to the banned insecticides dieldrin and DDT. Those can cause health problems in humans including nervous system damage, dampened immune system responses and lowered reproductive success.

Contaminants that accumulated in fish exceeded human consumption thresholds at the eight parks that researchers focussed on most: Sequoia and Kings Canyon, Mount Rainier, Olympic, Glacier, Rocky Mountain, Gates of the Arctic and Denali national parks and Alaska's Noatak National Preserve.

Also, mercury levels at the eight parks and DDT levels at Glacier and Sequoia and Kings Canyon exceeded health thresholds for fish-eating wildlife. Kent said he found airborne contaminants are causing male fish to develop female organs in some parks.

Much of the contamination is thought to have come from overseas -- traveling global air currents from Europe and Asia.

But researchers said they were surprised to find substantial contamination from the local use of legal pesticides, particularly in agricultural areas around Glacier, Rocky Mountain and Sequoia and Kings Canyon parks.

University of Washington atmospheric researcher Daniel Jaffe said scientists previously thought banning substances like DDT and dieldrin would lessen the persistence of chemicals in the environment.

"We replaced them with pesticides with much shorter lifetimes in the environment," Jaffe said. "But in places like the Central Valley of California, we are applying many, many tons of these every year. ... We now know they can move substantial distances."

A parks advocacy group called the federal report "a wake-up call" that should mobilize Congress to take a tougher stance on air pollution.

"We can take steps to reduce mercury emissions from power plants, steps to reduce carbon dioxide emissions that cause global warming," said Will Hammerquist with the National Parks Conservation Association.

The $6 million study is known as the Western Airborne Contaminants Assessment Project. It is the most comprehensive to date on the distribution and concentration of contaminants outside developed areas, according to the project's scientific director, Dixon Landers with the Environmental Protection Agency.

Contrary to the conventional wisdom that remoteness means less pollution, Landers said many of the parks -- particularly those at higher elevations and in colder climates -- actually are at higher risk.

Mercury from power plants in China, for example, is borne across the Pacific in clouds that rise up when they hit West Coast mountains. That causes the mercury to drop out of the clouds attached to rain droplets or snowflakes, he said.

Release of the study, which was coordinated by the National Park Service, came after a delay of several months. A Park Service spokeswoman, Colleen Flanagan, said the delay was caused by the time needed to analyze the vast volumes of data collected, from 2002 to 2007.

The study also included researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Forest Service.

Annual Grapevine Pruning Championship Friday Feb 29

The finals of the annual grapevine pruning championship takes place next Friday, Feb. 29, at Santa Rosa Junior College Shone Farm. Chronicle photo by Craig Lee

The above photo reminds me of John 15 where Jesus says:

1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.

18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.

22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.

23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.

25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

Attempted Kidnapping on Boyes Blvd

Boyes Hot Springs Post Office on the corner of Boyes Blvd and Hwy 12

Attempted kidnapping / assault charges

Friday, February 15, 2008 at 3:58 PM

On 2-15-08 at about 1200 PM, Sonoma County Sheriff's deputies were called to a possible physical domestic dispute in the 100 block of Boyes Blvd. Deputies arrived within three minutes and learned that a stranger had grabbed a 3-year-old girl and assaulted her adult female babysitter.

The suspect opened the screen door of the apartment where the child was standing and ripped the sweater she was wearing. The babysitter quickly intervened and the suspect drug the babysitter out of the apartment by her hair. The suspect then shoved the child out of the apartment and continued to struggle with the babysitter until a neighbor heard her cries for help and came to her aid. The suspect, who appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance, was detained by the neighbor inside the babysitter’s house until deputies arrived.

The child was physically unharmed. The babysitter, who suffered minor abrasions during the incident, was treated and released at the scene by paramedics.

The suspect was later identified as Normando Zamora Ramirez, a 24-year-old resident of Boyes Hot Springs. Ramirez was booked at the Sonoma County Jail for attempted kidnapping, false imprisonment, burglary and child abuse. Judge Antolini raised Ramirez' bail to $250,000.

Further inquiries should be directed to Lt. Rob Giordano of the Sonoma County Sheriff's Department Investigations Unit at 565-2185.

Woman Accosted in Sonoma Valley Regional Park

Hiker sexually battered in valley park

Monday, February 11, 2008 at 4:13 PM

On Monday February 11, 2008 approximately 1:49 PM a 66 year old female resident of Calistoga was hiking at the Sonoma Valley Regional Park located at 13630 Hwy 12 in the Glen Ellen area. She was using the main paved trail and had entered the park from the Arnold Dr. side walking towards Hwy 12 when she was approached by a male who tried to engage her in conversation. When she indicated that she was not interested in talking with the man, he grabbed her breast and ran off into the park.

The victim immediately left after alerting some other hikers on her way out and returned to her residence where she contacted the Sheriff’s Department.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male adult in his 20’s, wearing no shirt and baggy black shorts. His hair was described as long in the back, but short on top and he may have had a mustache.

While this is an isolated event, we recommend that hikers take a friend or walk in groups to discourage this type of predatory behavior. We would also ask that anyone that observes or experiences any suspicious behavior contact the Sheriff’s Department or a Park Ranger as soon as they safely can by calling 911 or by calling Sheriff’s Dispatch at 707-565-2121. This action will help us in quickly responding to and locating the suspect.
