22% Believe Bush Knew About 9/11 Attacks in Advance

“Psst. All systems go.”

On 9/11 at 9:05 AM Andy Card whispers something in Bush’s ear at the Booker elementary school, after which Bush just sits there calmly for another 15 minutes with a smug look on his face. Card was supposedly alerting a supposedly surprised Bush that a second plane struck the WTC and that it means we are now under a terrorist attack. And? And nothing!

The actual time Card spent whispering into Bush’s ear was about 1.5 seconds. To this day no one knows what he really said, but one would be hard pressed to explain to a president all the pertinent information in under two seconds, and then to have no response whatsoever from Bush just makes no sense at all. So what did Card really say?

Bush told displaced workers in an Orange County Convention Center Town Hall Meeting in Dec 2001 that Andy Card said the following: “A second plane has hit the tower, America is under attack.” To say this mouthful in 1.5 seconds is practically impossible and even if you are a super-duper speed talker, the words would be so run together that it would be impossible for anyone to understand. In normal speech, these two statements would take anywhere from four to five seconds to get out, minimum. So, it seems Andy Card had a much more brief, not to mention interesting, message to convey. What do you think it might have been?

22% Believe Bush Knew About 9/11 Attacks in Advance

Rasmussen Reports | May 5, 2007

Democrats in America are evenly divided on the question of whether George W. Bush knew about the 9/11 terrorist attacks in advance. Thirty-five percent (35%) of Democrats believe he did know, 39% say he did not know, and 26% are not sure.

Republicans reject that view and, by a 7-to-1 margin, say the President did not know in advance about the attacks. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 18% believe the President knew and 57% take the opposite view.

Overall, 22% of all voters believe the President knew about the attacks in advance. A slightly larger number, 29%, believe the CIA knew about the attacks in advance. White Americans are less likely than others to believe that either the President or the CIA knew about the attacks in advance. Young Americans are more likely than their elders to believe the President or the CIA knew about the attacks in advance.

However, just 8% of voters say the CIA was Very Truthful before the War in Iraq. Another 33% believe the CIA was Somewhat Truthful. Most, 52%, believe the CIA was Not Very Truthful or Not at All Truthful before the War.

Still, 57% have a favorable opinion of the CIA. Thirty-six percent (36%) have an unfavorable view.

Former CIA Director George Tenet doesn’t fare so well. He is viewed favorably by 29% of voters and unfavorably by 49%.

Just 12% have followed news stories about Tenet’s new book Very Closely. Another 29% have followed the stories Somewhat Closely. Fifty-six percent (56%) have not been following the news stories about Tenet.

Bruce Willis Says JFK Killers Still In Power

Actor tells Vanity Fair he’s skeptical of lone shooter theory

In a new magazine interview, Bruce Willis spills the beans on his skepticism that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the assassination of JFK, and suggests that the some of the same criminals who killed Kennedy are still in power today.

“They still haven’t caught the guy that killed [President] Kennedy,” Willis told Vanity Fair’s June issue, according to the New York Post .

“I’ll get killed for saying this, but I’m pretty sure those guys are still in power, in some form. The entire government of the United States was co-opted,” adds the Die Hard star.

So from where did Willis, a former die-hard champion of Neo-Con policy, receive his sudden wake-up call?

As we reported last year , Hollywood director Richard Linklater said he had handed out 9/11 truth DVDs on the set of Fast Food Nation , including Alex Jones’ Terror Storm and Martial Law documentaries, and that they completely changed Willis’ political paradigm.

“He said it put him in such a head space that he will be quiet on issues of national policy,” Linklater told the Alex Jones Show.

Is Willis’ comment that the people who killed Kennedy are still in power a reference to the fact that George H.W. Bush was photographed at the scene in Dealy Plaza?

Either way, it’s refreshing to see that Willis, who was vehemently pro-war and pro-Bush in the months after 9/11, has seen the light and realized that patriotism is about love of one’s country, not worship of government.

Eco-Extremist Wants World Population to Drop below 1 Billion

Business & Media Institute | May 7, 2007 

Note: Obviously, the Paul Watson featured in this article and the Paul Watson of Prison Planet are different people. In addition, Alex Jones of Prison Planet is not a Harvard professor, a New York Times writer or a football player.

Apparently, saving the whales is more important than saving 5.5 billion people. Paul Watson, founder and president of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and famous for militant intervention to stop whalers, now warns mankind is “acting like a virus” and is harming Mother Earth.

Watson’s May 4 editorial asked the question “The Beginning of the End for Life as We Know it on Planet Earth?” Then he left no doubt about the answer. “We are killing our host the planet Earth,” he claimed and called for a population drop to less than 1 billion.

The commentary reminded readers that Watson had called humans a disease before and he wasn’t sorry. “I was once severely criticized for describing human beings as being the ‘AIDS of the Earth.’ I make no apologies for that statement,” the column continued.

Watson was invoking the worst of Robert Malthus, an English political economist who claimed that mankind was overpopulating the earth. That claimed first appeared in the late 1700s. Watson urged some solutions for mankind as part of a process to “need to re-wild the planet”:

· “No human community should be larger than 20,000 people and separated from other communities by wilderness areas.” New York, London, Paris, Moscow are all too big. Then again, so are Moose Jaw, Timbuktu and even Annapolis, Md.

· “We need vast areas of the planet where humans do not live at all and where other species are free to evolve without human interference.”

· “We need to radically and intelligently reduce human populations to fewer than one billion.”

· “Sea transportation should be by sail. The big clippers were the finest ships ever built and sufficient to our needs. Air transportation should be by solar powered blimps when air transportation is necessary.”

· At least Watson was generous and said people could still talk with one another across great distances. “Communication systems can link the communities,” he proclaimed from on high.

The Watson rant kept on going calling for everything from cutting down on the population of domesticated dogs and cats to cutting down on everything else in what he called “simplify, simplify, simplify.”

Watson essentially called for humans to return to primitive lifestyles. “We need to stop flying, stop driving cars, and jetting around on marine recreational vehicles. The Mennonites survive without cars and so can the rest of us.”
